8n spark plug wires

Alan Chadwick I have a 51 Ford 8 n with side distributer and I'm confused on which plug goes to which hole in the distributer cap.
Wiring diagrams I have seen are confusing please advise as my cap has a port with the marked 1 and I assume the plug nearest the radiator is #1 also . If so what comes next ina counter or clock wise direction. I assume the firing order is 1,2,3,4

mark sr I don't know for certain but the firing order on the NAA is 1243, since many things carry over I would expect the same to be true for your 8N The #1 cylinder/plug is the one closest to the radiator, #4 is at the rear.
Jim L Hi Alan, welcome to the forum. What Mark said is correct. The distributor rotates counter clock wise. The only way to know for sure where number one port is on the cap is to pull the number one spark plug and hold you finger in the plug hole while you crank the engine (key off). When you feel compressed air against your finger, remove the distributor cap and see where the rotor is pointing. I hope this helped and you get your 8N purring like a kitten.
