1-3-4-2

Ignition timing is 1 degree after TDC.

Very hard to tell. Take off the distributor cap, and there will be a small notch in the wall of the distributor. That is where the rotor needs to be lined up to and that will be number 1. Then follow it clockwise - looking at the motor from the front - with the firing order I gave you.

You need to take the cap off to see the notch. It runs across the top wall of the distributor. Unfortunately I don't have one handy to take a photo, but you can see it here
