You didn't specify which engine you have. In 1966, Thunderbirds came with a 390 as the standard engine, with an option for a 428. Either way, the firing order should be stamped on the intake manifold in the vicinity of the carburetor. Assuming you've got an original motor, the firing order should be as follows: 1,5,4,2,6,3,7,8.
