My question is what’s the order my coil packs are in on my 2007 Hyundai Accent
As the coils are identical it doesn't matter what order they are in though it is important they are wired correctly - fortunately this is taken care of by the different lengths of connecting cable.
Matter of diverse interest; each coil is generally only half a coil as they operate in pairs, being wired in pairs and only needing a single trigger to produce sparks for two cylinders. This is the wasted spark principle that has been much used with small 2-cylinder engines for a long, long time.
What this means in practice - a misfire or similar spark problem with a cylinder could be caused by a fault with the other half, the paired coil.
It is best to replace the coils in pairs or at least check the other coil for shorted turns...

How to install a camshaft on a 2005 Hyundai Tucson.
This job will depend entirely on the actual engine you are working on and how much experience you have working on engines. Diesels are slightly different to gasoline as diesels need to be set up more accurately compared to gasoline. The best advice is that if you are in ANY doubt take the car to a Good Mechanic and pay them to do it.
To do this you will need to strip the Top half of the engine down. I would seriously recommend you buy a good quality workshop manual before you begin as that will help with the method needed and the torque settings you'll need for putting it back together.
You will need to drain the engine of oil and coolant, and the rocker cover for that side of the engine. Any timing belts/chains will need to be removed so you will need to set the engine to Top Dead Centre on cylinder 1 BEFORE you start and note the position of the timing marks used. You may also have to remove valve rockers depending on whether the engine is an 'overhead valve' or an 'overhead cam' type.
It is a lot of work but not difficult if you take your time doing it. It will take at least 1 full day to do. My first took 2 days.
