You can message me for more pics or measurements if you need them. Exposed part of the cylinder piston has been coated with an "extended period" rust inhibitor for storage. This rust inhibitor needs to be removed prior use and can be done so by using any SOLVENT based cleaner such as a simple paint thinner like mineral spirits. WD-40 works well for removing the coating also.
