Knocker is still Knocker

Crank has been checked, it's with in specs. Rod has been replaced, and wristpin checks out. I'm sure I checked for piston slap but found none. It's not ignition or carbon build up, just cleaned the head and piston, ignition can not be adjusted.
Any ideas? I'm going to check crank end play and piston slap again when I get home from school.

I took the head off after a little electrical fire piston was at TDC, pushed one side (valves side) and it pushed down.... Pushed the other side and it went down. Turned the engine over by hand and the knock sent out it's ugly vibrations. Centered the piston and turned the engine over and the knock went away.
I know I will need rings, but will I need a piston? I'm thinking I will need a wrist pin too so I'm thinking whole assembly?
Than since I'm doing that I guess I have to hone it too?

Bill do you think the bore is worn or the piston ? Al
This all needs to be checked to make sure you have an engine back together in specs.

The engine does not smoke or burn any oil, but yet it's so worn the piston is flopping around in there. I have almost exhausted all of my places to barrow precise measuring tools, and I can't take the engine into school to use those tools now either. I hope napa or o'reilly's rents out bore gauges
There is no end play
