Does it have press fit piston pins or full floating pins.What kind of locks if full floating pins??.

Decide right now the worst and be willing to accept it.

You can run tests like you did pulling plug wires,but at the end of the day sounds like there is something very wrong that needs to come back apart out of the van.Do not run it much anymore.
Oil pressure is good via the factory gauge 60 cold 40 warmed up.

It has full floating pins with a standard type clip.
