Best I could find was a post about firing order being 1-2-3-4-5-6,
Apparently the coil packs are marked different. Can't say what's up with that.

I read on another site that cylinders were no. 1,3,5 on the right and 2,4,6 on the left but he never said whether he was standing in front of the car or sitting in it. I'm not assuming anything right now. I've had this thing apart three times now and getting sick of it.

I hoped I was wrong and set valves per book with the exception that that cylinder 1 was on the drivers side. That didn't work out either because that left number 3 on the intake hanging open. I took a moment to find actual TDC since the timing tab was never replaced with the previous owner just to satisfy me.

I only see one choice right now do to the lack of info I can find with these crank triggered ignitions is to pull it down to the lifter valley so I can physically see the lifters moving. I normally do all engines this way to eliminate all assumptions. It's just it'll be the 4th time it's been down. Thanks to all.
