I have located the source for the knocking that was coming from my rebuilt 4.2 with less then 60 miles on it. It is coming from the #1 piston. I droped the oil pan and removed the rod cap and the bearings looked good. However I am able to get the piston to tilt in the clyinder by applying pressure to the rod. I need advice on how to fix this hopefullly without having to do major rework. I also installed a 4.0 head and I only torqued it to 80 ft lbs because the machine shop did not have access to a torque plate. Could the clyinder still be distorted with 80 ft lbs. of head torque. Block was bored 30 over and no decking was required. I have not yet removed the head to remove the piston. Can a bad wrist pin cause this condition. Once agiain thanks for all help and suggestions.........
