What if it is the piston pins?

Hard to say but very bad either way.
It is going to take some serious investigation and corrective action either way. Biggest issue will likely be where to stop - If you dig in and find a bad wrist pin, do you replace that and button it all up and hope for the best or keep looking and replacing stuff?
Good luck and if you have time, add in developments via comment to the original question.

I do not havbe hyd press. Is there any other way to press the pistons off the connecting rods so I can install my new pistons, without damaging the new oistons

with press fit wrist pin pistons the only way is the use of a hydraulic press and they will have to be checked to make sure the wrist pin and piston is centred to the con rod.

Replacing piston

If you have 100k miles or more I might not bother with the piston. You're probably better off purchasing a good used motor and having it installed for about he same or less cost unless you plan on doing the work yourself. The piston can be $400 alone. Then labor, gaskets , fluids, maybe another $1000. Then we have to worry about the other pistons. What caused the problem to begin with.

Hello, i have an old L65 Husqvarna chain saw, i have been lookin for a piston kit, but with no luck, i was told that old style 48mm piston out of Husqvarna model 61 will work in a l65 . Can any one co

I have a homelite piston running in my Husqvarna edger . Most pistons for engines are all the same if the cc's are the same . they only vary in the gudgeon pin size and the location of the pin in the piston. So take your piston to a small engine wreckers and any piston that measurers the same ,looks the same will do the job. then get a new piston for the make that it came out off and it will fit.

Steps to replacing rear brake pads

A special tool is required to compress the caliper piston on the rear brakes-don't use a C-clamp on the piston.
Raise the vehicle and remove the tire. The rear calipers have only one guide pin. Remove this pin and raise the caliper. Remove the old brake pads. Using the special tool compress the caliper piston-the piston will have one or two slots on it. These slots must in the correct position to remount the caliper. Install the new brake pads and slide the caliper back over the rotor and replace the guide pin. If the caliper doesn't slide over the rotor you'll need to reset the slots on the piston. Replace the tires and you're ready to go.

Emgine ribuild question

Well, any lateral movement of the connecting rod with the piston is not acceptable because it could wear to the point of being thrown apart over time.

Also, pins can be pressed out, I believe, even though I have never done this.

I have overhauled a 1979 Honda Accord and took the pistons out, but the machine shop said that they were ok, at the time.

1999 honda accord ex v6

The back brakes on my Honda Accord are disc brakes. After removing the brake cylinder assembly you will see the brake cylinder piston end has a slot in it. The short pin on the back side of the inner brake pad fits into this slot, but also it is used to 'Turn' (clock-wise) the piston back into the cylinder so you fit the assembly back over the new 'thicker' pads. You can not 'press' this piston back into the cylinder.
