40 The number 1 cylinder is the closest to the front of VINTAGE ENGINES On a few older engines, the number 1 cylinder was positioned behind the front cylinder in the opposite cylinder bank. These include Ford’s Y-block engines from the mid-1950s to mid-1960s as well as Ford and Mercury L-head engines and some older Pontiacs. VINTAGE ENGINES The V-type engine uses a two-barrel intake manifold. On most V8s each barrel serves four cylinders. In theory, the V8 is actually two four cylinder engines operating together and a V6 is two three cylinder engines.
