I generally don't talk to myself when I'm tinkering, but I cursed out loud when I got the strainer out.

Fortunately, the rest of the sump was clean as a whistle (just some erl). A previous owner apparently nuked his piston, subsequently having the top end rebuilt, but neglecting to check the strainer. The "mechanic" probably didn't even know it existed.
