If the piston screws onto the rod, assemble them and drill a hole at approximately the pitch diameter of the thread through both the rod and piston. I wouldn't go all the way through. You could either tap it for a setscrew or just put a pin in it and peen the hole over to keep it from escaping.

It will not come loose if you keep the pin in place as it has to shear the pin across its length.

Figured would add a photo or two
Not many other guys have expressed appreciation for the disc sander repair, but I sure do like it. Had to make this rod end and while I did cut most of the corners off, and then using a shell index mill cutter to get closer to the round line, I finished it up on the disc sander.

Of course today, the guys were trying to say I made the new rods to short because the rod would retract so far and the wiper would get into the weld area, but they didn’t realize that when they ordered a different style wiper than originally in it, it stuck out a quarter inch longer.
