THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT NATURAL SUPPLY AND EXHAUST VENTILATION OPENINGS WERE OF INSUFFICIENT SIZE FOR THE COMPARTMENT NET VOLUME. THE GASOLINE ENGINE SPACE WAS OPEN TO ADDITIONAL COMPARTMENTS FORWARD OF THE ENGINE SPACE. THE TOTAL NET COMPARTMENT VOLUME OF APPROXIMATELY 124 CUBIC FEET REQUIRES A MINIMUM AGGREGATE CROSS-SECTIONAL AREA OF 16.0 SQUARE INSHES FOR BOTH NATURAL SUPPLY AND NATURAL EXHAUST. TWO 3-INCH SUPPLY VENTS AND TWO 3-INCH EXHAUST DUCTS WERE INSTALLED!@ WHICH PROVIDED AN AGGREGATE OPENING OF 14.2 SQ INCHES FOR THE SUPPLY AND 14.2 SQUARE INCHES FOR THE EXHAUST.
