2 stroke / 2 cycle - different names for the same thing.

This link should help you out.
I would hope that for the benefit of all in understanding the term that we don't edit the link but of course don't let me stand in the way of ignorance.

A 4 stroke does not expel the exhaust out the side of the cylinder it relies on push rods that articulate with a lobed camshaft, this opens and closes the exhaust and intake ports, thus my statement of less to go wrong on a 2 stroke.
