Now using your own body anatomy as reference point....
(L) hand area is the first bank of the engine and is numbered from front to back.
If V6, then it is 1-2-3
If V8, then it is 1-2-3-4
(R) hand area is the second bank of the engine and is numbered from front to back.
If V6, then it is 4-5-6
If V8, then it is 5-6-7-8
