For a 10v motor, I thought the rotor turns counter-clock-wise looking down
on the distributor cap.  

My 89 200 didn't run well when I installed the spark plug wires 1-2-4-5-3

Firing order is 1-2-4-5-3
Cylinder #1 is at the front of the engine, and at the front-most position on

the distributor cap.  There should be a metal "scribe" line on the metal
of the distributor under the edge of the cap, right by the #1 cylinder 
position.  Follow the order around clockwise.
