SOURCE: 2002 mustang firing order 3.8 v6
The firing order is 142536. The cylinders are numbered 123 on the passenger side and 456 on the driver side. The numbers go from front (or the radiator) to the back (or the firewall). The coil has the cylinder numbers printed on it. If they are gone,text me back and I will see if I can get a picture showing the cylinder number for you. The coil should be numbered 123 on one side and 465 on the other. I hope this helps.Chuck

Testimonial: "Very helpful, I did finally find it on the web after putting in ford firing order. Thanks very much....."
The engine is a 200 CID straight six, the firing order is 153624...
Just pop the distributor cap and have someone crank the engine while you watch the rotor.
How I can determine which hole in the distributor is assigned to the #1 plug wire.
Pull the number one plug. Turn the engine over slowly (with a wrench) while holding your finger over the plug hole. When the air builds (a lot of) pressure you are coming up to the number one spot on the distributor. (the rotor will point to the location of the #1 hole in the distributor.)
Quick methods to disable the engine I have seen people do on the classics:
Close the points by loosening the set screw
Pull the rotor cap
Connect a wire from the coil to ground. (effectively closes the points. Can damage the coil if key is left on.)
Pull the main ignition wire
And there are some tricks at the starter solonoid involving the ballast resistor bypass that is used to provide a hotter spark while cranking. (Two little wires at the starter solonoid - one is crank the other is the ballast bypass.)
Might give those a look-see. Best of luck (rememeber rated this help).
