GM 3100 V6 rebuild (3.1 litre)

2012-03-06 : Rebuilt GM (Chevrolet) 3100. New main bearings, rod bearings, camshaft bearings, piston rings, head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, EGR gaskets, intake gasket, plenum gasket, Exhaust manifold gaskets, valve stem seals, thermostat, oil pan gasket, oil pump, water pump, oil filter, engine oil, and paint. I neglected to include piston rings in the audio, but the engine does have the new rings.

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!!!!!!!!
