correct me if I'm wrong

I am working on a 91 F-150 with a 5.8L.

Am I right with, the position of the number 1 cylinder. It is the first cylinder on the passenger side of the engine correct.

I am installing the distributor for this engine. It has been so long since I worked on the 5.8L that I am trying to remember this.

Firing order is 1 3 7 2 6 5 4 8.

i think thats right but the easiest way to tell is by the heads which every head is closer to the front of the truck is your odd cylinders so the first one will be 1 but thats the easiest way i can tell

It is 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 and the cylinders are numbered 1-2-3-4 front to rear on the passanger side and 5-6-7-8 on the drivers side. #5 cylinder is the frontmost cylinder on the dist. cap and the rotor turns counterclockwise.

All ford v8's are the same. As you face the engine with crankshaft pulley in front of you, Cylinder numbers are 1-4 on the left side counting from front to rear and numbers 5-8 are on the right counting from front to rear.


I think that the firing order is correct for that year 351w.
