    Hayne's is wrong. The firing order is 1-3-4-2.

    Hayne's manuals SUCK. I wouldn't trust them for shit. I remember when I was building my b20/vtec, it said to torque the cam cap bolts to like 84 ft/lb. I believe the correct torque is 20 ft/lb...

    Fuck Hayne's.

    By the way the #2 wire is the longest. #1 is second longest. #3 is third longest and #4 is shortest. is this right?

    Also, my distributor cap has a raised A on it. I'm not sure if that indicates the number one spot and if it does it is on the number 4 spot. someone help please beause now i am horribly confused.
