Hi , and good morning, I cant provide you with a picture, but this should help you. Firing order 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. Determine where # XXXXX is firing, by removing the dist cap, and # XXXXX plug. Hold your finger over the #one plug hole and have some-one gently BUMP the engine over untill you hear the compressed air at # XXXXX This proceedure will tell you the direction of the firing in the distributor, and where # XXXXX is located. By looking at the engine , and standing in front of it , you have your two engine banks, left and right, left is the drivers side ,right is the passengers side. # XXXXX plug is left front drivers side. Left front or front of the line. On the left and behind # XXXXX are #3-#5-#7 in that order. On the right side you have #2-#4#-#6-#8 in that order.
