    Slant six = 1-5-3-6-2-4
    324 Olds = 1-8-7-3-6-5-4-2
     
  6. Firing order really different = FORD
    every time I forget that one I screw up on a Ford, I just look in the book after it backfires .


    Pontiac distributor goes around the opposite direction.

    1243- For Bangers
    1432- Volksies

    Everything else I have to look up because I don't spend enough time with them.

    15 is too young. 36 is too old. 24 is just right

    I still keep a couple of the old Champion tune up brochures. Besides firing order you need to know how the cylinders were numbered.

  17. IH V8's are 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 too, but the timing is done off the #8 cylinder, so much fun.

    Ain't that the truth! A co-worker bought a decent-running '73 Ford truck with a 390, did a tune up (without knowing how the cylinders were numbered) and it never ran again. After the tune up (tune-down?) and it didn't start, he started checking stupid stuff like valve lash (FE's are shaft mounted, no adjustment) then off came the heads, it got water in the cylinders (he was working outside BTW) and then he just gave up. Some people shouldn't be allowed to own tools...
     
  22. Four Stroke Radial engine , like on a airplane, has an odd number of cylinders and every other cylinder fires in sequence ... say a 9 cylinder; 1 then 3 then 5 -7-9-2-4-6-8- and back to 1..... seems simple enough!

    I memorized the Chevrolet and Pontiac firing order that weekend in 1967 trying to get my Pontiac started. Yes all weekend and no start. I checked the order so many times that I memorized it. I finally got some help and we both discovered at the exact same time that Pontiac's have a CCW rotation unlike the Chevrolet CW rotation. #1 and 6 would fire fine. 45 years later and it's still stuck in my grey matter.
