You should have traced them before you took it apart! the only way to figure it out(besides looking at a similar truck or a manual) is to connect one wire at a time to see if it backfires or fires the correct cylinder.(this will be a huge pain on a V8, I usually only try this on 4 cylinder engines).Once you figure it out,clean an area under the hood,and draw a diagram with a sharpie,then clear coat it with spray paint.

Check the wheel bearing free play by rocking the wheel side to side by hand . If you feel any knocking then they need to be adjusted.Also check the panhard rod bushes , this is the rod connecting the front axle to the chasis.Have the wheel alignment checked if these are o.k.

SOURCE: distributor cap and spark plug leads order/layout?

The firing order is 1342. The cylinders are numbered from left to right 1234. Depending on wether it is a 16 valve engine, the distributor cap lead number one position is at the front on the left, if its a normal 8 valve engine , the distributor cap lead number one is at the front pointing straight at the front. So, moving anti clockwise, the next lead will be number 3, then 4 , then 2.

I have bought a 99 land rover discovery and it is overheating


From practical experiences of heavy trucks, this problem is created by poor coolant flow thro' the Radiator Core. Flush cleaning the Rad. or decontaminating the exterior air flowways will not cure the problem. My recommendation is a Recore or after market replacement.

Fuel supply problem in 1998 Landrover Discovery. 3.9 V8


not likely a fuel issue,
try running it in the dark of night , no lighting and look for sparks ,
have the ignition coil tested , be sure it has good ground.
pull each plug and watch the spark ,does it maintain the blue long arc.
tune a am/fm radio to the sparks ignition sound an listen to it
a portable walkman can lead you to the faulty spark,
or just have them monitor the spark at the shop.
