BUICK'S NEW EVEN FIRING 90 DEGREE V-6 ENGINE

The new 3.8 litre engine is a 90 deg V-6 even firing design. This engine features a new split-pin crankshaft. The new crankshaft design required that changes be made to the connecting rod and bearing and timing changes to the ignition and valves. Structural changes were made to the crankshaft and piston to reduce stress and provide excellent durability. /GMRL/
