The general term for piston is cylinder, and a cylinder might be made to work in this application. But a cylinder used in this manner, that is, a cylindrical shape connected in a machine that is used in the same way will almost certainly be called a piston by most investigators.

How do you replace a piston on a small engine?

need to be more specific on what kind of small engine to give you exact information on how to pull the piston. . . but generally you just need to pull the head and cylinder off. . . the remove the wrist pin that holds the piston to the piston rod and your piston will come out. . . now getting the new one back is is going to be a different story :) . . . you are going to have to stagger the ring gaps to make sure you are holding compression . . . basically just make sure none of the ring gaps on your piston rings line up when you put the new piston back in and oil your cylinder pretty good too helps with putting it in and with breaking in the new piston.
