Here ya are, Enjoy

Standing in front of the truck or Engine (Radiator side) starting with the Front passenger side (Left side as you are standing) the first piston or wire is number 1

Then that same side next is number 2

And last (at the firewall or windshield is number 3.

Now on the Driver side front or (Right side as you are standing) the front piston or wire is number 4

The next is number 5

And the last (at the windshield) is number 6.

This is tricky on how to write this but I will do it like this:


-----1*---- 4*-----

-2* ---To Coil ---5* <---------Distributor Cap

------3*---- 6*-----
