Your number system is wrong. the number one piston is located on the front passenger side, and 2,3,4 go down the left bank ( as you look at it from the front) and 5,6,7,8 are front to back on the driver side.
Id love to be building an engine for mine.Thanks Blake! It’s going slow at this point but I’m plugging along, reading a lot to prepare myself for final assembly. So much has to happen. I’m back in school too(only had a 14 day break) so I’m working on it every chance I get, which isn’t a lot.
