I think the haynes cheapo manual has a diagram - would have expected it
to be in Bentley..  Putting the wires on in firing order unfortunately
doesn't tell you where to start.  So you would have to trun the engine
to TDC, hope it the right one (pre-ignition, not pre-intake) and check
the rotor position.  Whew!  I think usually the rule is to
remove/replace one wire at a time?  Or as on my Frod truck, write the
cylinder numbers on the cap with permanent magic marker?
