Angry help! I need to know the firing order!

Hey guys:

I currently own a 1968 chevelle ss with a 402 in it. I was changing out my wires and doh, I pulled out too many, and made a mess out of the whole thing. Anyhow, I was wondering what the firing order is. Currently I have an MSD ignition coil, Unilite by Mallory distributor, and Edelbrock carborator and intake. Please help me, I miss driving my chevelle!

Well, entertain me a little. Frankly, no, I dont have a manual, but I just purchased one online. Im trying to get this thing out today if possible, I need to start her up. She's been sitting for a month now and I need to take her out.

Thanks for the help, but how do I tell where #1 goes, etc. Do I just take the distributor cap off, find where it sits, and place my #1 on that point? Again Im using a unilite distributor.

As inexperienced as you seem to be, I doubt if I could explain it to you. Search the knowledge base, it has been covered a 1,000.00 of times, and should be easy to find. If you can't find anything come back and we can try.

Thanks guys for the help. About an hour ago, I managed to get a good explaination from my uncle, who is a little more mechanical sabby than myself. Anyhow, I got the new wires on, got them in the right position, and took her out for a spin. She drove beautifully. Thanks again!

All three of the Edelbrock intake manifolds I have are cast with the firing order right on them, and each of the intake runners have the corresponding number of the cylinder they feed right next to where it meets the cylinder head.

I was at a loss for words when I first read this.
