Quick V8 Question


Recommended Posts

Only on my first cup of coffee so my brain is still a bit dull... and iam sure some one will be able to answer this very quickly

if looking at the v8 block from the front (water pump end) is pot 1 the first on the left bank or the right? :blink:. This is just to clear up a discussion I am having :D

thanks for the input......

On your right.

Normally, right and left are considered from the point of view of sitting in the car, so that's actually the left cylinder bank:


1 - 2

3 - 4

5 - 6

7 - 8


thanks for that the confusion was from looking at the V8 engine manual

as it has

Firing order 1, 8, 4, 3, 6,5, 7, 2 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Cylinders 1, 3, 5, 7 - LH side of engine

Cylinders 2, 4, 6, 8 - RH side of engine

cos if i have done the manual i would have put the RH lin above the LH line <_<

and this engine rebuild has been on of those projects where you do lots, and then nuthing for a month or two so i now cant remember which pot i had at TDC when i did the timming chain :ph34r:

and jameslwt you know that answer to that! too busy fixing landrovers and helping you :rolleyes:
