Both run the same firing order.The common fault with these 8 plugs engines is the distributor rotor.Remove the dist cap first.
To remove the rotor you may have to 'bump' the engine over to reveal the screw or small bolt that is on the shaft side of the rotor.Sometimes there is a plastic cover to remove also to see this.
Inspect closely and you should see a burn track or hole from one side of rotor to the other 4 firing ring.
It causes backfiring and rough running/starting.
To replace it ensure that you get the right one as there are quite a few variations of shaft size and shape.I hope this helps you,or get back to me with your findings.

WHAT IS THE FIREING ORDER OF 1983 V8GASOLINE BENZ


The firing order for an '83 Mercedes-Benz V-8 is 1-5-4-8-6-3-7-2. And, here's some more information. If you are wondering which physical plug corresponds to the number 1, look at the engine's banks (it's a V-8, so there will be two banks for four cylinders). As you stand there -- you should be at the front looking toward the windshield -- the left-hand bank of cylinders are 1 to 4 (1,2,3,4) and the right-hand bank is 5 to 8 (5,6,7,8). I hope this helps.

My crank shaft is rotating twise the crank shaft. HOW MY 1342 FIRING WILL OCCURE?, I can spare only 30 digree for charge and spark plug contact. THERE ARE ONLY 2+2 CYLINDER. 180 DIGREE APPART KINDLY REPLY...


Your crankshaft turns 2x times the camshaft. Put it this way as # 1 cylinder reaches TDC (top dead center) of the firing/compression stroke, and this will be after a (8 degs BTDC) spark to ignite the air/fuel mix, the # 3 cyl. will be at BDC of the intake stroke and as #1 begins its power down stroke, (during explosion of air/fuel mix), #3 begins its compression up stroke, the #4 cyl. will be coming down with #1 cyl. but #4 will be in the beginning of its intake down stroke, and #2 cyl. will be coming up with #3 but #2will be in its BDC of the exhaust stroke. Which has just fired previously to #1. 1342134213421342 etc. Now the cam turns to open / close the valves; In the outline above, #1 cyl. valves will both be closed. #3 cyl. will have the intake starting to close at this point. #4 cyl. will just be starting to open its intake valve, and #2 will be starting to open its exhaust valve. Is all this clear as mud? So as the crank makes one full rotation (in a 4cyl. engine) only the firing of one cylinder has happened.and at every rotation one cyl. will fire. So #1 at TDC then one full rotation, #1 back at TDC, but this TDC is half of its 4 cycles, (1)Intake, (2)compression, (3)power, (4)exhaust. this 1234 refers to the 4 cycles of the rotation not firing order.

For the firing order and wiring routing2_bing.gif for the 8 plug 4 cylinder engine: (Plugs on the intake manifold side are coded "I", and on the exhaust manifold side are coded "E")

Wire to 1I should be connected to tower on the distributor facing directly to the front of the vehicle. Going counterclockwise from there, the order is (1I), 2E, 3I, 1E, 4I, 3E, 2I, and 4E.
