    No.1 is timing belt end, and the firing order is indeed 1342.

    thanks for that but i wanted to know is where no.1 lead goes on the
    distributor cap. i know the rotor arm goes anti clockwise.

    he has taken all the old leads off and not marked them to put back new
    one in same order on the cap end. and the car seems to be firing on 2
    plugs only. yet all the plugs are sparking, and will not start. not
    sure if when the ignition is on the fuel pump should run, it is not a
    fuel injected model

    The best way to set it is to make sure that the cam timing marks are
    aligned...The rotor arm should then be pointing at No.1 plug lead in the
    distributor cap.
