The Firing order Is 1,6,5,4,3,2 Pistons 1, 3, 5, are on the Driver side from Front to Back, Pistons 2, 4, 6, are on the Pasenger side from Front to Back. On the Distribitor the first Piston PIN SHOULD Be Directly Behind The Carborator then Connect the rest in a Clockwise rotation (from Right to left)in this order 165432 (HINT) The Distribitor SHOULD Face the Drivers SEAT I.E. the bottem of the Distribitor where there are two Plugins for two Eletical Juntions for the Eletrical Harnes Probable for the Ignition @ about 45 Degree angle faceing the drivers Seat. This way Pin 1 for Piston 1 SHOULD be ALLWAYS be Directly in Back of the Carborator!!!!!
