I should have stated more clearly. Since the firing order is clokwise then the number 1 Plug will be the first one to the left of the window on the distributor. The firing order is stil the same 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

You are correct, 1-3-5-7 are the left bank when in the drivers seat and #1 is the front cylinder. At the distributo, r find the window, and as you are looking at the window, #1 SHOULD be the one to the left of the window then 8-4-3-6-5-7-2 going CLOCKWISE from #1. Not sure about the modern day 7th Cav.I'm 1st Sgt of Company F. Horse cavalry. My CO is G. A. Custer Lt. Col. Bvt Major General. Lololololol I'm a retired SSG (24 years) but now do the reenactment of Little Big Horn
