“The V8i engine has cast aluminum cylinder heads and cylinder block. The two banks of steel cylinder liners which are pressed down to stops in the block are set at 90 degree to one another. The three ringed aluminum pistons transmit the power through the connecting rods to a cast iron five bearing crankshaft, which drives the centrally located camshaft via a duplex type chain. The electronic ignition distributors is driven by a gear off the front of the camshaft and the lubrication oil pump is driven by a gear off the front of the crankshaft.”
