Question help with 1990 5.0 firing order?

Hello, I'm looking for help for my neighbor, he's 75 years old and started to replace his dist. cap and removed all the wires and now has gotten them crossed. What I would like is some help with the firing order and where #1 is on the block? If someone could post a pic of the block and the cap with #1 highlighted it would sure help out alot
Thanks
Crankydadjk

On my 90 302 #1 is the front cylinder on the passenger's side bank. It goes 1-2-3-4 with four being closest to firewall. #5 is driver's side front, and 6-7-8 follow with 8 being closest to firewall.

Firing order (counterclockwise on the distributor) is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. Cylinders numbered as written above. Number 1 should be marked on the distributor cap itself - should be about 180 degrees from the direction the TFI plug comes out, probably around 11 o'clock when looking at the distributor from the front.
