Here is the picture that I wanted to post with my earlier topic "734 Kit Not going together well." This is the PTO side Piston/Cylinder. The piston appears to be hugging one side or leaning to that side. The piston top to cylinder deck measured .011 difference from the inside to the outside measuring parallel to the wrist pin. What is going on here? Should I put this together the rest of the way and run it or is there a problem that I should tear it back down and send it back to RKT????

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had very similar problem recently. Turned out to be a bent rod.
First swap pistons to see if the problem follows the piston. Then swap
cylinders to see what happens. If the problem is still there, then likely the rod
is bent. I was able to see the bend in this rod by holding a straight edge
against it and shining a light. Very slight bend in the lower middle part of the rod.
Although mine was not so bad that visually the piston was cocked, but the piston deck height measuremeant was off as yours is.

Hope this helps.
