The firing order of the Ford, beginning with the front cylinder as No. 1, should be 1, 2, 4, 3. If your firing order is not correct, arrange the wires from the coil to the timer so that the firing order will be correct. Remove the timer cap and examine the action of the timer roller when the crank is turned. Now attach the wire from the battery to any part of the metal of the engine or frame.
