To my knowledge, firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 clockwise on the distributor cap with the Number 1 post pointed towards the Number 1 cylinder. The cylinders are numbered 1-3-5-7 (front towards the back) driver side while the passenger side/bank are numbered 2-4-6-8 (likewise front to back).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Isuzu seem to have complicated things by changing engines, firing orders and even direction of rotation! As you can see, they've numbered the cylinders the other way than the 3.2L.
The Firing sequence for the 3.1 (traditional distributor) 6 cylinder is as follows -
If you take the distributor cap off, there should be a "No.1" formed on the inside. Stick a lead on this before you put the cap back on and go from there.
As leads are different lengths, you may have to swap a few to find the best fit.
I think 2 of them will look out of place - but that's the way it's designed. Just make use of clips for holding them neatly.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Your firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4 and your #1 is the cap terminal the 3 O'clock from the front so that would be the one towards the driver's fender and the rotor rotates clock wise. So the next post would go to the #5 cylinder. Hope this helps friend. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your truck running 100%.
