Re: Piston slap: how long?

Update: Finally got a chance to disable cylinders to see if there was any affect on the noise. From the top of the engine, it's loudest at the very back of the engine near #6. Cold and wet today so I didn't try a stethoscope on the bottom, and as I was working alone I couldn't listen down there while pulling injectors.

All that said, pulling each injector harness had *no* effect on the sound. Am I looking in the right part of the motor?
