1967 ford f100 firing order for spark plugs has 1968 390 v8 aoutomatic


According to my Chilton book the firing order for that motor is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. Cylinders are numbered 1 through 4 on the passenger side from front to back. Cylinders 5 through 8 are the same on driver's side. The distributor,on the front, turns counter clockwise. The clips to hold the cap on should be at 12 and 6 o'clock and #1 piston is the first one to the driver's side of the back clip. Hope this helps

I need a diagram showing the spark plug wires on a ford 302 motor


FIRING ORDERS NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement. If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired. Fig. 1: 300 cid (4.9L) inline six-cylinder engines Firing order: 1-5-3-6-2-4 Distributor rotation: Clockwise 85762008.gif
Fig. 2: 232 cid (3.8L) V6 engine Firing order: 1-4-2-5-3-6 Distributor rotation: Counterclockwise 85762006.gif
Fig. 3: 255 cid (4.2L), 302 cid (5.0L), 360 cid (5.9L), 390 cid (6.5L), 460 cid (7.5L) V8 engines Firing order: 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 Distributor rotation: Counterclockwise 85762007.gif
Fig. 4: 351 cid W & M (5.8L), 400 (6.6L) engines Firing order: 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 Distributor rotation: Counterclockwise 85762009.gif

Ned to now wat the firing order for dist cop shood be for a 1987 ford f100 pick-up truck 300sixcylender stick shift model#333


The F100 ended in 1983, so there is some confusion on your 1987 Ford F100. The F150 started in 1983 and was available in 1987, but not the F100. You have this listed under the 1981 Ford F100 category.
The 300 CID = 4.9L In-Line (Straight) 6-Cylinder.
In order to best answer your question I have included both the 1981 F100 4.9L and 1987 F150 4.9L below. The only difference is with the Distributor Cap Configuration and Connections.

For the 1981 F100 300cid=4.9L:
Firing order:
1-5-3-6-2-4
Cylinders:
(back)
...6
...5
...4
...3
...2
...1
(front)
Distributor:
...(back)
.........4..[.]-clip
2
...................1
6
................5
[.]....3

For the 1987 F150 300cid=4.9L:
Firing Order:
1-5-3-6-2-4
Cylinders:
(back)
..6
..5
..4
..3
..2
..1
(front)
Distributor:
.......(back)
.................4
.....2
[.]
.......................1
..6
.........................[.]-clip
....................5
.......3
.........(front)
