Echo LeafBlower PB-46ht Piston Damage!

Hello all I had previously posted my blower because it wouldnt start and I noticed that it did have a nice spark but now after carefully checking I see that the piston is not shiny on the muffler side. I could see scoring on the piston(probably the compression problem)!! I could find a piston kit for it but do you think that the same thing would happen to the new piston!! Thanks everyone for any help..

If the cylinder has similar scoring, which is likely, then that may also cause an issue even with a new piston kit.
