There is another possibility. These engines have pistons with short skirts. We tore down a 5.3 (after doing everything else we could think of, bearings, lifters etc) and it was piston slap. A hone out and new pistons solved it. It is common and engine can run a long time without repair.

Hopefully yours isn't that bad, but I just figured I'd post it here since we're talking about it.
Wow, that is a strange one.
