Firing order

Hey guys anyone know the firing order on a 50 Chevy straight six? Also any idea on which of the cap spots is for the number one plug wire?
I have a friend working on one and he didn't pay attention when he took it apart.
Thanks for the help.

According to my '72 manual, #1 is located facing the front of the engine. Another way is to get the engine to #1 TDC and drop the distributor in any place. Wherever the rotor is pointing you can make that #1 on the cap.

firing order

The firing order should be on the intake manifold.
Get TDC on @ 1 cylinder and then look at your rotor position.
To get the rotation... distributor cap off and crank it over.
