Just today I had to figure this one out. My son wanted to tune the car up, but took everything off at once. I referred to the Internet but could find little help. I did find some pictures on the Internet that show the firing order wrong. I have a 1993 Ford Thunderbird LX, with a 3.8L V6, and after garnering information from several sources finally got it right. The cylinders are numbered 1 through 6, with #1 being the forward left corner, or the left corner closest to you as you look at the engine from the front. That would be the front most corner on the passenger side, forward starboard if you are into nautical terms. Then, working clockwise, #2 is aft of #1, then #3 is the back plug on the passenger side. Still working clockwise, #6 is the aft-most on the drivers side, followed by #5 in the middle, then 4 is the front-most corner on the drivers side. [3] -- [6]

[2] -- [5]

[1] -- [4]

The distributor follows no easy pattern. #1 on the distributor cap is on the top, midway between the two screws, in roughly the 1:00 position. It will be two points away from the round attaching screw, working counter-clockwise. Some Internet sites show it being at the bottom in the 5:00 position; this was wrong on my engine. In fact, the distributor cap installed had a 1 embossed on the cap in the correct spot. The wire placement order, starting with #1, is as follows... 1, 4, 2, 5, 3, 6.
