MegaSquirted GM V6 in Datsun Roadster
3.4 Liter GM V6. 3X00 Top end. 11:1 Compression on Pump Gas. MegaSquirt II
V3.57, MSExtra code 2.1.0. About two feet of Exhaust pipe from the custom headers. Just
enough to house the O2 sensor.
Starting the 'other' 2.8 Chevrolet motor 1-23-10
Re-put-together with parts from the 2.8 I shot with my hakim, this engine
had a spun rod bearing which messed up the crank, and rod. I re-assembled
it with the crank from the other engine, and one rod, and fabricated an
adapter plate to mount a 2bbl carb in place of the fuel injection system.
A few issues, but it does start and run. Don't know what I will do with
this engine....in the spring maybe rev it until it blows, or shoot at it.

Spinning over a V6 GM engine
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!!!!!!!!

I neglected to include piston rings in the audio, but the engine does have
the new rings.
Equinox 3.4L Blown Head Gasket
Diagnose and change your own head gasket and save a couple grand $$$. I did
the whole job for about $175 but you can do it for $75 without changing the
thermostat and water pump.
