It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure the 'firing order' for the mk 2 fiesta is 1-3-4-2. So if you look at engine from the front #1 cylinder is the left one (furthest from distributor). The easiest way to align you engine timing/firing order is to remove the cam-belt cover on the left-hand side of engine (10mm socket, bit of a squeeze). You will now be able to see the timing marks on the cam pulley wheel & engine block, to line these up put the car in 1st gear and rock/push the car enough to turn the pulley without starting the car. you now have the firing position for #1 cylinder, the 'dizzy' cap only fits one way so fit lead for #1 where the rota arm is positioned, bear in mind the engine rotates anti-clockwise as look across engine bay from near side or towards you if you standing in front. Fit lead for #3, #4 then #2.

Plug wire positions on 5.0 distributor cap 1993 F-150?

Remove the spark plugs, use a spanner to turn the crankshaft until you see a piston at the top of the cylinder (top dead centre), that is the chamber about to fire so the lead from that plug should be matched to whichever lead the rotor arm inside the distributor cap is in contact with, or is about to contact. Repeat the procedure to determine the 2nd and 3rd in the firing sequence, then you can guess where the last one goes.
