No oil on the piston?
I can't believe that... it's metal to metal contact and moving to some degree every time you move the gas pedal therefore changing manifold vacuum while the motor is running.
It's an aluminum piston in a magnesium housing/cylinder.
I can't believe you can leave that dry, it will score and wear out real quickly if no lubricant is on it.
I believe it should be oiled lightly with a thin synthetic oil when you assemble it, and I was asking what other people with experience have used with good success.
