SOURCE: timing on a 350 chey engine
take out number 1 spark plug and put your finger as to block the hole ,have a friend bump the starter till you feel air rush out real fast / called the compression stroke when it does stop and look down the top center for timing marks on the pulley and line them up on the timing cover then place the distributor in place as so the rotor is pointing at the #1 piston location, basically the dr. front corner and start there, timing order is 1..8..4..3..6..5..7..2.. now if you get all these in right 1..3..5..7 are on the drivers side front to back and 2..4..6..8 on the passengers bank front to back and the distributor turns clockwise .good luck hope this helps you.

On your Ford E 350.
Are 3 Engine sizes available. 5.0L, 5.8L and 7.5L.
The Firing Order for 5.0L and 7.5L are the same.
But diferent on 5.8L.
Here is a Picture if the firing order and cylinder number.
tHIS IS THE FIRST FIRING ORDER FOR 5.8L.
The CIRCLE mark is for the cylinder # 1 on the distributor cap.
This is for the 5.0L and 7.5L
The Circle mark is for the cylinder # 1 on the distributor cap.
The ROTOR turn Clock wise.

The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.
The distributor rotates in a clockwise direction. The engine must be on the compression stroke on the #1 cylinder. Line up the timing marks. Remove the cap and the rotor should be pointing to approximately the 5 o'clock position.
