It's a misprint for 'piston slap'. Piston slap is a clattering noise made by the
piston... How do I explain this... Then piston ideally sits perfectly parallel to
the bore. If the piston skirt was too short or the tolerance between the piston and
the bore was too large, the piston could 'wobble' (We're not talking a lot, but
enough to make noise). When this happens, the corners can 'slap' the cylinder walls,
make a clatter like noise.

What I don't understand is, I have read that Ford was putting Hypereutectic Pistons
in it's Triton motors and was using a new production method that allowed for tighter
tolerances in the cylinder wall, for less blow by and more oil control without
increased friction. All of that should render piston slap almost inconceivable. I
would have thought anyway.

BTW, does anyone know (or experienced) if this problem extends into the V-10, being
as it is basically the same motor with 2 additional cylinders.

Thanks,
Chad

Hi folks,

I tried to post a web address about painting and messed up the post. Well
here goes again.... If you are interested in painting your truck or need
information on paints and prep. work there is a web site that I think will
nterest you. It is located at
www.horizonweb.com/wwwboard/Spray_101/wwwboard.html
I hope you like that site as well as I did. It has a question and answer
format and it shows some of the topics that have been discussed over the last
several month.

Frank,
I am not from the area,but maybe the color and more would help find your
truck.Chances are that the plates were changed.Did you have a cap,running
boards,bug shield,visor?All of this info will help find your truck.
Good luck,
Mark K.
