Carb cleaner to get the dirt and shavings out then Mother’s metal polish.  Rubbed that around then carb cleaner again and a dry flannel rag.  😊  metal polished the piston edge to make sure there was no minor scratches there.

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
