It was on an old engine or I think a tractor that I saw those numbers stamped on when I was kid.
I ask my Dad what those numbers where?He said it was the firing order and if you can remember them you will know the firing order for any inline six.So you could have looked up 223,250,225,300,etc, they are all the same.

Take it away Dinger!

that kinda reminds me of when I was in High School auto shop...My shop teacher was notorious for giving us "pop quizes"...And one day he told us that the following question accounted for the majority of our semesters grade...The question was, "What is the firing order for a SBC?" Only a hand full of us got it right...Man, I loved that class!

This is another site question, should be fairly simple, I have to run! We have a member of theis site that was also an original member of the Ramchargers racing team of the 60's. Who is it?
Good luck, Dan
