Correct. But this is a 2.3L correct? If it is then you have what is called a waste spark plug. I included a picture of both sides of the engine. You have a coil pack on both sides that has the same firing order of 1-3-4-2.

Take a look at all this info and let me know if you have questions. Thanks

I have a 1986 Ford Ranger with a 2.3l. The block is a 1989 and the rest is a 1986. I got spark and gas. The timing is set to specks with cam and crank but it don't want to start. Could it be the computer or the cylinders.

Could the cylinders be reversed?
