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.

SOURCE: 1990 nisan n13 motor 1.6, has no spark to coil i drove car to train station, when i got back the car would not start, replaced coil, distributor, ecu box, all fuesible links, plugs & plug leads, f
I can give you a little general help on this. With key on, the coil primary positive wire should have voltage. I think that may be a black/white wire? This is directly from the ignition switch on the run wire. If you have power there, then everything else is in the distributor and controlled by the ecu. I see you have changed the coil, the distributor, and the ecu...check the main relay, it's a power source for the ecu. The power feed to the main relay is a 25amp fuse link (see you changed fuse links, too). Is the ecu on? Key on, all warning lights, and check engine light on?
I cannot find a test procedure for diagnosis. But as I said, everything is inside the distributor. Yes, there is a crank angle sensor, more commonly known as a Camshaft Position (CMP) Sensor. Essentially the same thing, the CMP sensor sends a signal to the ecu of both engine speed and piston position reference-TDC. The ecu then determines ignition timing-sending a spark signal to the ignition module inside the distributor-then the coil sends spark. The sensor has a rotor plate with 360 slits for 1 degree signal (angle signal) and 4 slits for rpm signal. Has a light emitting diode and a photo diode to catch the signals...it's all sent to the computer. Maybe you got a bad distributor?
