All the rods and pistons are assembled. I went back and measured the width of the slot in the rod.

At the big end side it measured .133″ and at the pin end measured .129.  There goes your pin clearance.

I started cleaning out the smaller galleries. I started with a .25 caliber gun brush and that did nothing. Move up to a .30/.32 and that seems the correct size.
