I got about 1000km on my engine and the piston is a little loose when i checked inside for a checkup on the rings it seems to still be seating and plenty of power from the motor but the piston not so much just about a 3/16 of a millimeter if that i can move it back and forth inside the jug the walls look ok very minor chrome loss if any anyone knows the clearances it would be nice

Plenty of power I wouldn't worry too much but there is a couple of c clips that go inside those 2 holes maybe you lost one. Ace hardware and Home Depot has them or some automotive places.
Or you might have a worn spindle and bushing. eBay new piston, rings, spindle and bushing 10 bucks. I got to force myself to order maybe do it next hour.
