MTU 2000 Cylinder designations

MTU use the DIN ISO 1204 specs in which
Left is defined as A and Right is defined as B.

Sides are viewed from the driving end, or 'KS' in the ISO specs; this means as viewed from the flywheel.

Numbering cylinders begins from the flywheel end starting with: A1 = Left 1 and B1 = Right 1.

MTU 2000 firing orders:

Rotation (facing rear end) - Counterclockwise

 8V = A1-B4-A4-A2-B3-A3-B2-B1
12V = A1-B2-A5-B4-A3-B1-A6-B5-A2-B3-A4-B6
16V = A1-B5-A3-A5-B2-B8-A2-A8-B3-A7-B4-B6-A4-A6-B1-B7
18V = A1-B6-A3-B4-A5-B2-A7-B1-A9-B3-A8-B5-A6-B7-A4-B9-A2-B8
