Firing Order

I accidently goofed up the plug wires on my GM stock 350. Does anyone know a website which will show me the firing order for both the block as well as the distributor. I can not locate them on the car either on the block, intake or distributor cap itself. I am new to this mechanic stuff and this is my first learning curve. Please help. Thanks

Firing order

SBC Firing order 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2

Drivers side of engine from front (radiator) to rear (firewall) 1-3-5-7

Passenger side of engine from front (radiator) to rear (firewall) 2-4-6-8

Remove your #1 spark plug, and rotate the engine over to the compression stroke. Your finger will get pushed out of the hole. Now look at your balancer, it should line up with the timing marks. Now remove the distributor cap. The rotor should be facing towards #1 cylinder. That is where you start with your #1 plug wire. Now just go around the cap clockwise with the rest of the firing order 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
