The ones I took off recently and the replacements I got were certainly not tapered.

There's no mention of it in the TS Haynes.

Thanks guys.  I think the pistons will be OK.  There is a littler corrosion on the very edge, which seems not too hard to rub off.  The rest of the body also looks ok,  I still have not pulled them down completely yet. Will get there eventually!
