One thing a lot of people don't know about those cars. the cowl is different, it isn't just the front fenders and hood.

You're gonna like this one. It's going to get a 401 Buick Nailhead.

What domestic car had bolt on door skins. You had to remove the outer door skin to remove the door glass for example.

This is a hard one because there may be another that I don't know about.

I came up with three, so far. Do you mean a metal door skin or just whatever?

LOLOLOL, what a dummy I am, the SATURN! LOL, and I worked at a Saturn specialist shop where that was all we did! LOL, I was thinking 1963-65 Riv as Dan guessed.

Joe, what is the other one?

Ford and Chevy with same firing order.

This is a fun thread but it gets tough trying to stump you guys, but I'll give it another try.

Excluding the manufacture specific piston numbering system for the last 40 years name a few chevy and ford V-8's that share the same firing order.

Explain yourself a little more. Ford numbers the cylinders different. But even if you make those numbers the same, the front left on the Chevy is the number 1 while the front right on the Ford is the number 1. So, no matter how you look at it they don't have the same "firing order". Unless there is a Ford or Chevy V8 that I don't remember......

Come on you guys are smart enough to figure this out.

Read the question:

"Excluding the manufacture firing order". What I mean is number them any way that you want to. Think outside the box. Yes a firing order is written in all the manuals as number one being first but when you shut your engine down does it always stop with number one on top dead center?

A little hint! Think about the English, a lot of our limy brothers across the pond numbered their engines a,b,c,d ect.

If you take the most common Ford V8 firing order (15426378) and convert it to what it would be if the cylinders were numbered like a SBC I come up with 21843657. Now shift the numbers over so they start with one and you get 18436572, which is the same firing order as every Chevy V8 I know of.

So if you ignore the cylinder numbers and just look at the pattern in which the cylinders fire, All Ford V8s, except for the 292, 5.0 HO, 351C&W, and Modular, have the same firing order as a Chevy V8.

So all Chevy V8's have the same firing sequence as a Ford 221, 260, 289, 302, 352, 390, 410, 427, 428, 429, 460, and 462.

Maybe I'm over-thinking this question...

Joe G is correct!

If you swap the numbers around in reference to which one is number one on the block and which one is number one on the cap they have the same firing order. Isn't it amazing?

And the Chevys LS1 5.7L, LS2 6.0L, LS4 & LS6 5.3L and LS7 7.0L Share the same firing order with the 5.0L EFI, 351, 5.4L & 5.8L Fords.

About thirty five years ago I wired a ford 302 mustang with a Chevy firing order and guess what? It ran fine. Later when I put the timing light on it I found out it was way out of time and I thought that the balancer had slipped. It could'nt be that far off. I had put the timing light on the Ford number 5 plug wire and of course the timing mark was not showing up at the marker. Me and a friend showed this to his father (a genuine master mechanic), he laughed and said "You got the clip on the wrong wire".

When we put it on the right wire (Ford number 1) it was so close all it needed was just a little nudge. He laughed at us some more and said "You boys don't know whether you're working on a Ford or a Chevy".

As he went back into the house to catch the evening news he said "The only time it really matters is when you put a light on it cause they both have the same firing order".

It took us a couple of days of looking at firing order diagrams to figure out just what he meant. And as best as I can tell there is only two firing orders for all 90 degree V8 engines.

Joe U-Genius, now has the floor!
