What is the firing order on a distributor cap

Hi Elikapeka . which engine is in your Thunderbird? Also Why do you want to know? is it not running?
the V6 3.8 litre firing order is:
V-6 Firing Order: 1-4-2-5-3-6
if you are having running problems and you have the big carburetor rather than injection. a good tuner guy is your expert and these guys do it by ear if they know what they are doing.
