    it is 1-5-3-6-2-4 but it should not be a 4.0 in an 83 falcon, it would be a 4.1, totally different beast, they have the same fireing order but in 88 they changed from internal cam which is easily timed to the 3.9 OHC, also easily timed. in the 94 EF with the 4.0 OHC, there is a sensor on the front pulley and can't be adjusted(if the timing is out then you have to replace the pulley) but the EL can be timed and the AU is the same as the EF

    I would like a diagram for my ecmb fuse for a 1992 s10 blazer 4x4 4.3 litre engine

    Hi, the ECM B fuse powers the ECM and the fuel pump. It's hard to say where the ECM power is used, since it appears as a black box in the schematic. The fuse box or owner's manual may indicate circuits that the fuse powers thru the ECM. If you find you need additional diagrams, please let me know and please specify if you have the VIN W (central point injection) or the VIN Z (throttle body injection) engine.
