Really Dumb Question about wires to HEI

I just changed my intake manifold and had marked all wires to my MSD HEI but some rubbed off and I need to know if anyone can give the the plug wire numbers starting at #1 on the cap. Would really help me out. This is on a 1st gen 355 SBC.
Thanks Lots

Number one on the cap SHOULD be the front tower on the passenger side
If you were to draw a line from the CENTER of the cap to the exhaust crosover area on the passenger side---that line should run very close to #1

From there------1 8 4 3 6 5 7 2--------clockwise

If some of those marks are still on the cap---you should be able to figure where the #1 is from that.
