53fordguy,

This is the firing order for a 312 V8 Ford engine. It was used in many cars and trucks in the late fifties.

Does it have those really cool ramhorn exhaust manifolds? It might be the larger truck verzion of the Y block, a 332 I think.

Ford's "Super Duty" name originally applied to the 401, 477 and 534 gas V8's used from the late 50's until the early 80's in heavy-duty applications. I believe they used the firing order you have listed. These engines are physically huge.

One way to ascertain the difference:
Y-blocks (such as the 312) had center valve cover bolts.
SD's had perimeter valve cover bolts.

Lots of engines have huge holley 4v's, whether original or aftermarket. Check the valve covers.

The 302/332 HD truck engine was in the LINCOLN Y-Block family. Discontinued in 1963.
