agree  Dr Lofthouse: 'Iniettore' is the fuel injector system, so if this is a small diameter cylinder sitting inside the fuel injection system, it might translate to 'piston'? try http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iniettore

injector needle


Explanation:
on 1980's tractors with diesel injection, the actual fuel is injected by forcing a needle into a chamber and into the combustion chamber, ....later on gasoline injection, electromagnetic force moves injector needles up and down according to computer control

--------------------------------------------------
Note added at 436 days (2010-04-16 05:17:23 GMT)
--------------------------------------------------

the needle on old fashioned deisel injections, is forced into the injector body, and the desel contained in the injector body is thus forced into the combustion chamber
