Cool

What's an Australian LN3?
I take it it's a GM 3.8?
What years?
More background would be nice.

LN3: 3.8ltr Buick V6 with '3800' embossed in top of plenum, non-symetrical spark-plug holes, our 'non-symetrical' spark holes V6's were seriesI (your pre-series) and seriesII (your LN3 or seriesI).

our seriesI was in the 1988 - 89 model VN commodore while;
our seriesII was in the late 1989 - 1994 model VN - VR commodore

Both in RWD platforms

We also have our 'ecotec' (your seriesII) or 'L36' N/A and 'L67' supercharged versions.

I am after aftermarket parts for the LN3, (our seriesII, your seriesI)

After ALOT of searching I am unable to locate ANY information.
Apparently 'CHAMPION' GN-1 heads won't fit my motor, something to do with the water galleries......... I'm not sure this is correct though. If anyone knows if there was a difference between the Australian and American early Buicks it would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

A pic of what you have would be very helpful. I see you've posted on both forums. Welcome aboard for the second time.

Cheers. I didn't realise the two were interconnected. why not just have one?

The Radius Kid: It looks like either of the motors you posted, however our early-girls weren't blown so its a bit hard to say for sure.

I will post some pics, though im not sure if they will be helpful in identifying the motor (bad angles).

Anyway, here's some pictures.

Cheers guys.
