78 302 firing order?

I was wondering what my firing order is for my 1978 merc 302 engine. I am trying to time this beast, and dont see the notch on the pulley. I want to make sure that my new electronic ignition is pointing at #1.

Thank you.

78 302 firing order?

All small-block Fords (except 351W) are 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 Until 1982 for H.O. then changed over to 351W firing order to take some of the stress off of #1 main bearing. Good luck.
