IH 444 with a C-153 engine

Chuck I'm trying to figure out the cylinder numbering. Is it 1 to 4 from front to back. Also the distributor number. I can see the marking for one, but does it count clockwise or counter-clockwise. So I can hook-up spark plug wires.
MGS Yes, front to back. Most distributors are clockwise when looking at the rotor. Firing order is 1-3-4-2. You can test the rotation direction by watching the rotor and bumping the starter.
ponymare #1 cyl is at the front of the engine, to find out how to place the plug wires correctly, remove the dist cap, turn the engine clockwise, standing in front of it, and watch which way the dist rotor turns.
