ENGINE DATA LOCATIONS
The cylinder block is an "enclosed V" design,
which provides an inherently rigid structure with
good vibration levels. Nikasil (a composition of
nickel and silicon) coated cylinder bores provide
good friction, heat transfer and piston noise
levels. A low volume coolant jacket improves
warm-up times and piston noise levels; the
longitudinal flow design of the jacket, with a
single cylinder head coolant transfer port in each
bank, improves rigidity and head gasket sealing.
The right hand cylinder bank is designated as "A"
bank, and the left hand as "B" bank. The cylinder
bores of each bank are numbered from 1 to 4,
starting from the front.
Engine data is marked at three locations on the
cylinder block. Component diameters are
represented by alphabetical and numerical codes;
keys to the codes are in the Service Manual.
