300 inline-6 firing order????

I cannot find the firing order for my 84 ford bronco 4x4. I rescently changed the cam/lifters, put an offenhuaser intake and holley 4160 carb on her. I got every thing together except the the dist and plug wires. I can't find anything anywhere and then I found this site. Thank-god.
Also, if anyone could give me a wiring diagram or tell me how to wire together the stock dist/coil/ignition system. Appearantly there are 20 or so wires hanging around in there that I don't need or have any idea what they go to. Remember that I changed my intake and carb. I no longer have all of that emissions stuff to worry about.
Other things Ive done to the ole girl: Z-gate shifter, fuel cell, 2800 stall conv, 9" rear-end, 7" of ttl lift, 38.5 supper swamper boggers, pace setter headers, tranny cooler, and I have a mallory dist and Hi-Fire ignition for later, but first I gotta get her running.

300 inline-6 firing order????

[font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON 11-Jun-01 AT 10:37 AM (EST)[/font][p]i know them numbers by heart 153624 clockwise rotation.

alsoyou said you had twenty or so wires on that ignition system, well im assuming its the tfi system, is it?
if i was you id switch to a simple system such as points, or duraspark 2, clifford has malory distributors for the 300 as well.

Welcome to the site. If you scroll up you will see someone has posted it, it is:

1 5 3 6 2 4

Rotor turns clockwise. To find your number 1, there should be a "1" marked on the cap. If not, just trace where #1 is on the old cap before you take any of the old wires off.

unless you remove the distributor..replacing the OLD #1 in the same position on the new cap is what u must do irregardless of where the "1" is stamped on the cap.

My question is concerning the location of the #1 cylinder on a ford engine compared to GM engine. Not the location of the #1 cylinder on the distributor cap.

I don't understand what you're trying to say; your sentence is constructed in such a way that makes it difficult to read. My previous post is almost five years old; it is by chance I noticed that you were responding to it. The thread itself is over 11 years old.

Well, on any inline engine the #1 cylinder is the first one in the front.

I believe every inline 6 is 153624. I know all of mine, even my IH Scout diesel, had the same order. Oldest was a 48 Chrysler Spitfire flathead and newest my 95 300 with a bunch of Chevys, Fords, Mopars, and AMCs in between.
The old mechanics saying was 15 is too young, 36 too old, and 24 is just right.

As has been said before, it all depends on your point of reference!
