I have a F250 1971 360 engine 2 barrel need firing order and layout

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

Automatic 46,700 miles

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. change spark plugs, distributor cap, coil, plug wires Need to check the firing order to make sure they're correct

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

As the engine gets hot, it crossfires and misfires. Is running rich and need to adjust the carburetor and suspect it's got a bad cap and crossfiring.
