    Can you identify what cylinder this is?

    This is a really bad picture I know...but for you guys that deal with these day in and day out....can you identify if this is cylinder #1 ( front of the ski ) or # 3 ( rear of the ski )....?


    Your help will be appreciated....

    It's #3 cylinder. The one nearest the back of the ski.

    FYI all cylinders are the same the only thing that makes them a 1,2 or 3 is when you mount them and install the valve linkage.

    You can tell it is in the #3 position because you can see the exhaust mount bracket in the upper right...

    you can also tell it is #3 because you can see the Powervalve Pulley at the back of the cylinder.

    related to this thread ,so its not quite a thread theft...Just a "I'd like to know?" question.. sorry..

    Would a builder cut the timing (compression change via port height) on a rear or even #2 cylinder different, to have it run cooler??? reason I ask, is there are motors built factory ,thou 4 cycle(@ vw 1600-h4), with distributor lobe on #3 being slightly different from the rest to let it run cooler???would a ski,now we are talking just two stroke here, have this done or is useless to have done vs. any gain's ??????
