    A single-acting cylinder in a reciprocating engine is a cylinder in which the working fluid acts on one side of the piston only.
     Double-acting cylinders (DAC) use the force of air to move in both extend and retract strokes. They have two ports to allow air in, one for outstroke and one for instroke.
