The pistons seem to be OK, I'll have to do a closer inspection. I'll have a look at your links.
My guess is you have thrust wear. The motion of the pistons going up and down have a component of pushing against the wall. Partly due to geometry of the rods/wrist pins and probably gravity as well.

It's been awhile, but I did send off some blocks to have them nikisiled and then honed by Millenium Technologies
