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

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