Have 67 Ford Mustang GTA 289V8. How do spark plug no. layout on engine left side is 1-3-5-7 and right side of engine is 2-4-6-8. Would that be correct and what is firing order?

The 67 289. Right (passenger) side, 1-2-3-4, left (drivers) side 5-6-7-8. Firing order, 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 cc. This should also be cast into the intake manifold in front of carb. Also, dist rotation is counter clockwise as your looking at motor from front, and #1 should be at approx 1 Oclock position. Most dist caps will have it marked.

Need spark plug wiring diagram for 1965 ford

Try this. If the distributor is in the right way, the clips that hold the cap on should be just a hair off of 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock. #1 is positioned at 1 o'clock, which is at the firewall side of the distributor. The firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8and is counterclockwise from #1. The passenger's side is cylinders 1-2-3-4, from the front of the car. The driver's side is 5-6-7-8 from the front. Hope this will help.
