You put the piston upside down with connecting rod into the metal cup holder. Take the fluted rod, place flute end over the piston's ball joint. Give a light tap with a hammer, until the connecting rod ball end play is removed. This is called "resetting the piston socket".
Thanks for the answer, and yes I have seen this slop in the cup and ball in some of my older engines and now I know how to fix it.

Thankyou
Joe
