What did you use to polish the inside?  Looks nice.

First off thanks as always for the advice, I got a number of suggestions and it seems a bit of elbow grease and emery paper was the recommended course of action.  It was suggested to make sure of the contact point to use a blue indicator, well it is $9usd and $50cdn.  So needed another solution.  Reading other posts on different sites, it was suggested to use a fat sharpie to colour the metal then make it the parts rub.  Then the contact point showed up.  Well, after about 2hrs of sanding and checking I got it to slide cleanly.  After carb cleaner and polishing of the piston and pot and voila finally reinstalled….  Those pistons go thunk now
