Hi guys,I have a Cobra through a Ford FE390 engine in my shop. The distributor is significant with numbers and also if I think these numbers ( clockwise ), the firing order is 1 5 4 3 7 2 6 8. Is this correct ? i thought, that the correct firing-order because that these engines is 1 5 4 2 6 3 7 8....Thanks,Stephan
you are correct cap is wrongFord 352 360 390 406 427 428 V8 Engine Specs | speak Specs - Cylinder number is numbered - Firing stimulate - Distributor RotationKenny

They can be in the appropriate location, simply numbered wrongly if they called the cylinders other different. Also the distributor rotates counterclockwise not clockwise. Rewire the cap and also plugs to enhance the correct firing order and also you need to be an excellent to go. Acetone is good for cleaning off sharpie if they significant the cap with it. An excellent LuckMike
