facing the front of car or looking at fan on your left is 1,2,3,4 front to back on the right
is 5,6,7,8 front to back.
i think firing order is 1,3,7,2,6,5,4,8
i will try to verify this and get back to you.
good luck w/t-bird
i checked my ford manual-that is the firing order for all 351`s and 400`s.
