The recommended timing for the 460 big block Ford engine is 14deg before top dead center. If you get cylinder pinging or detonation from low octane fuel, you will have to reduce the timing accordingly. The cylinders are numbered as follows: Passenger side, front to back:1-2-3-4. Driver side front to back: 5-6-7-8. The firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. The distributor rotation is counterclockwise.

Your cylinders 1-4 passenger side,5-8 drivers side. Firing order is 15426378, looking at engine #1 is at 1 o'clock position, and order goes counter clockwise. The timing varies from year to year - call Ford w/your eng. # for exact timing. To get you in the ballpark,12 degrees BTDc if you have a vac guage, connect to a vac source on intake, crank motor up turn distributor until you get highest vac reading, then back off 3 lbs of vac.

Formally, the number 1 cylinder is the cylinder that is "top-dead center to fire" when the timing marks on the crankshaft and camshaft gears are aligned.

To make it easier, the cylinder numbers are often stamped into the intake manifold, usually right next to the intake port, and also in a picture of all cylinders someplace on the manifold. It is also often on the EPA emissions sticker.

In an inline engine, number one is usually in the front, nearest the water pump.

4 or 6 cylinder straight blocks No. 1 is always the first one next to the pulleys. On a V block, if you look down at the top of the engine, No. 1 will be slightly forward. It can be on either side of the motor, but most likely on the drivers side.

How to install distributor wire the order I misted the order


Depending on what engine you have, hear are the firing orders:
Small block 302 or big block 460: 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8
Small block 351: 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8
Looking at the engine from the front, cylinder number 1 is at the front on your left. That side is numbered 1-2-3-4. Number 5 cylinder is at the front on your right and the numbering is 5-6-7-8. The distributor spins counterclockwise. Number 1 is usually marked on the cap. If not, no.1 on the cap is about 1 o'clock as you're looking at it from the front. Good luck!

Next time number each lead before you remove it and no. the dissy cap as well

The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.
On classic chevy small block engines that use ignition breaker points instead of electronic ignitions, the number one cylinder is the one immediately clockwise of the small metal sash cover on the distributor cap. The firing order starts here. There is no sash cover on the distributor cap for GM HEI electronic ignitions, and the firing order is the same, but starting at the 5:30 position.
The firing order makes sense if you know how the cylinders are numbered. The number one cylinder is the front most on the drivers side and 2 being the front most on the passenger side. From front to back, the cylinders are odd numbered on the drivers side, and even numbered on the passenger side.
See the diagram; Click to open a printable larger image in a new window. The firing order starts with the number one cylinder. We would connect the number one spark plug wire to the distributor cap terminal in the 6:30 position. distributor.pngSince the next cylinder in the firing order is 8 (passenger side rear), we connect the number 8 spark plug wire to the next distributor cap terminal (approximately 7:30 position) in the clockwise direction from number one. You need to be sure you continue the firing order in the clockwise direction around the chevy small block distributor cap from the last installed spark plug wire. Setting the rest of the firing order is just a matter of repetition. Be sure to count the spark plugs from front to back on each side of the motor to identify the correct cylinder number in the firing order.
