Oh wait up a second....
Just to be clear... If it's a Vulcan Engine then that is the "OHV" instead of DOHC Engline right?

Yes, the Vulcan engine is the plain vanilla 2 valve per cylinder, OHV, single cam engine.

Yes. it only HALF fills under the hood. The Dutatec has honking wide heads - very obvious when you look under the hood. On a 2.5 Mystique the joke is you can tell if you left a bolt out by pouring a quaet of water over the engine. If it takes tess than 15 seconds for the first drop to hit the ground you left something out.
