I decided to try a aftermarket piston kit. The part number matches but the piston is slightly bigger than the bore.

What's wrong with your original Piston? If it's just the top edge I would not worry about it unless it's really worn.New rings will hold it away from the bore and keep it from scrapping.

 

Now you got Me worrying.Hope the new Connecting rod I just got for my Briggs fits.

Top is ding up a little but other then that it in good shape. The rod I got looks good.

Most times pistons have to be sized to bore at a shop that might do such work.  At times the oval shapes of bore and pistons don't match and might need honing to fit.  That is why you should buy pistons first before the bore, so it can be matched. I realize no bore here, but sometimes still need fitting.

Maybe just a little ridge formed near the top ?  I've never had to use anything more the sandpaper on my small engines but years ago I would borrow my grandfathers ridge reamer for automotive engines getting new rings . Some where had such a big ridge I would do that before trying to take the piston out in fear of breaking a ring land
