The piston sequencing is shown for a 3.4 liter GM V6 engine.
Note, it turns out that I numbered the cylinders wrong, what I call #1 is actually #2, and what I labelled as #2 is actually #1.
So the Actual firing order as a regular V6 engine, is 1,2,3,4,5,6, I know, weird, but that is they way they made them. I am more used to V8 engines, so that is why I numbered the cylinders the way I did.
Either way though, it shows that the crankshaft will not work as it is for the Junkyard Deltic project. Time to cut and weld the crank!!!!!!!!

Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

inner/outer tie rods, pump, reservoir, hoses and pipes.
3. Suspension: Purpose is to provide stability and handling while also
providing comfort to the ride. Consists of shocks, struts, sway bars, end
links, springs, trailing arms and bushings.
1: Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning (HVAC): Heats and cools interior
air to passenger comfort. Also circulates outside and inside air.
• Air Conditioning: Consist of condenser, compressor, accumulator
(receiver/dryer) orifice, expansion valve, hoses, evaporator, controls,
actuators and modules.
• Heating: Consists of heater core, valves, hoses and switches.
1. Power Generation: Creates electrical power to run all the electrical
systems. Consists of the alternator.
2. Power storage: Stores unused power to start the car and supply voltage
to the alternator to create more electricity.
• Both systems consist of wiring, harnesses, fuse, relays and modules
Un-seizing a V6 engine #4
The V6 engine I have is seized up, so I show how I get it to spin over
Note some of my techniques are not recommended for a useful engine. One of
the most important factors is time, the longer you let diesel or
penetrating oil sit in the cylinders, the better, so long as you keep any
water out at the same time!

GM 3400 / 3100 3.1 3.4 Engine Misfire Cause & Causes Miss Missing P0303
Here is a video for fellow GM 3400 & 3100 liter engine owners. Have a
misfire? This video explains the causes for what could be causing the
problem. Mine showed up as a P0303 cylinder 3 misfire. Couldn't figure it
out, but finally did. The spark plug and wire were replaced along with a
new coil. Could hear the injector firing with a stethoscope but still had
the miss. Found out after tearing into the intake that the lower intake
If your car is missing out, first try the following. Check for spark and
check the spark plug, wire and coil. A test you can do if it randomly
misses is in the dark, spray a mist of water around the plug wires. If you
see blue arcing, you've found the problem. But be careful not to zap
yourself, IT HURTS!
If the spark is good the listen at the injector. Is it firing and
clicking? If not, you've found the problem.
If both those seem good, then check for compression. Do this with a
compression tester available at any Autozone with the loan a tool program
If all 3 of those check out then it's a possible vacuum leak. May be time
to do an intake manifold gasket repair as they are known to go out. But,
if you do have to do an intake manifold gasket fix, go ahead and replace
the head gaskets too. You'll be glad you did. Not fun taking it all back
apart again. Check out my youtube channel for these videos both on doing
the lower intake manifold gasket and the head gasket.

This video is about one of my favourite sounding engine the Alfa Romeo 2.5
L V6. This engine is quite famous for having powered the insane Alfa Romeo
155 V6 Ti DTM/ITC. The V6 was able to produce 480 hp in its last version
(the one of the car you see in this video) at 11900 rpm (!!!) and it was
able to reach a top speed of 300 km/h.
You can see and hear the sound of the V6 engine mounted on the 1996 155 DTM
while making a warm up and then you can hear it in action mounted on a
hillclimb prototype car, called Juno Racing Ch2 (without sound
