In most vehicle's distributor caps it is marked clearly.
You can easily locate the # 1 on the distributor, alll you have to do is rotate the engine to its top dead center mark found on the front crankshaft pully, remove spark plug on the piston number one and six cylinder, by the help of the dip stick you will be able to note that the pistons are on top( you will have to put the dip stick in the hole of the spark plug).
It will be better too to remove the valve cover so tht you would thn be sure tht the # 1 cylinder 's valves are fully closed both inlet and exhaust thus it being on ignition stroke whereby the rotor in the distributor would be on the # 1 wire, this explanation is taking into account the valve timming hasn't been distrubed.
Hope this helps!

Hi, the firing order is ( 1 - 3 - 7 - 2 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 8 )
The distributor rotor turns COUNTERCLOCKWISE
The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces to the REAR and slightly towards the drivers side, the engine cylinders spark plug locations are numbered.
