All FORD V-8s are numbered: Pass. side, from the front, 1,2,3,4. Drivers side, from the front, 5,6,7,8. HO firing order is:1,3,7,2,6,5,4,8. Distributor turns CCW when viewed from the top.

To find TDC #1 compression stroke. You take the #1 plug out, plug the spark plug hole with your finger, rotate the engine until you feel a burst of air. Then line up the marks on the harmonic balancer to the pointer at 0. Then line up the rotor button between post 1 and 3 on your distributer cap.

To answer your question, if you have everything above done right. The rotor button will be between #1 and #3 on the cap. Does that answer your question?
