If you are talking about piston side pictures then the pin normally moves side to side in piston like that, it is locked into the rod only. Now, if pin moves in rod, then both are junk.

Hard to say on replacing rod. The flat on sides can be checked with a flat edge and pin out to see if bent sideways........
