Question Ignition questions

What direction does the rotor turn on the Flathead distributor? is it counter clockwise like all other ford v8's?

And What are the firing orders for the Flathead v8's, and are they all the same?

Are these firing order(s) n rotor direction the same for the Lincoln FLathead v8 engines too?

Thanks for reading, and any knowledge ya'll have about this

The rotation on '49-'53 Flatheads is Clockwise.

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