Question Y block with a 15426378 firing order?

I own a 1963 ford F-100 with a Y block engine. The door tag suggests that the engine is a 292. The exhaust has the crossover pipe. The carb. has a C3TF stamp. The engine block has a C2AE stamp and the intake has a COAE-9425-f stamp. The distributor has a B9AF 121? stamp. The firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 Counter clock direction. Is this a 292 y block or maybe a different size engine? I keep reading that the Y block has a 1-5-4-8-6-3-7-2 firing order. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Firing order is cast on the intake manifold, are you reading it correctly? Wire brush off the 44 years of crud and look again.

According to chiltons auto manuel, thats the firing order for a 302,390,429,460 ....... the correct firing order for a Y Block is:1-5-4-8-6-3-7-2

Firing order

If the distributor is on the front of the block you probably have a 390. Y Block distributors are on the back of the block and angled toward the passanger side.

He posted the casting ID's at the beginning. No doubt it is a 292. NOT an FE/FT or whatever else.

I think this needs to be answered first. How about it Deadeye1963?

I don't know if you have the engine running already, etc. But if you are reading firing order from how the wires are connected, are they simply in the wrong order?

Thanks all for your replies. I appreciate the information about this engine and it is obvious (to you guys) that this is a 292 that I have.

The reason I was wondering about the firing order is it isn't stamped on the intake and the engine won't start now. I am sure I have a Y block, but wasn't certain about the size. I did see the other firing order posted as an answer to someone asking about a 312, but they were wrong I believe.

The engine was running pretty good, but the oil pressure is low when it is warmed up and idling (20psi). Since a compression test is relatively easy I performed a compression test first to get an idea of the condition of the engine.

When replacing the plugs and wires I went by the correct firing order for the Y block; CCW 15486372.

The truck wouldn't start. I checked, re-checked, re-re-checked and confirmed the firing order and location of #1 cylinder. Still nothing but backfire. Everything checks to be OK as far as electrical and the distributor hadn't moved.

That is when I thought that maybe the firing order was different or I had a different size engine. Obviously not and not that it mattered anyway.

The truck still wont start. When looking at the distributor cap the #1 plug location is marked at about the 11 o'clock position. #2 is right at the 12 o'clock position. Does this sound right?

I removed the distributor cap and rotated the engine by hand. I stuck my finger into the spark plug hole for the #1 cylinder and noticed that the distributor rotor points at #4 location when the compression forces my finger out. This doesn't sound correct to me or maybe I am doing the test wrong. I am thinking the timing was thrown off when I did the test. Is this possible?

Any further advice will be greatly appreciated!

thanks again!

Terry

Remove and reseat the dizzie for #1. The most you will be off is 1 position.

The thumb test is valid. #1 is straight back on the cap and just slightly to the left of the coil wire. Id call it 11 oclock.

I just learned something new! I just looked at a C0AE intake and there isnt any firing order. Dont know when Ford quit marking them.

if you look at the blue thunder intake you will not see a firing order.on the back you will see the casting number.when the blue thunder was built john mummert loaned him a 57 style intake as a guide.john decided one without the firing order looked cleaner so he gave him that one.
