  • In the case of reverse rotation marine engines where the distributor rotation is opposite of a standard rotation engine, the reverse rotation firing order becomes 1-2-7-5-6-3-4-8.

Be sure on the Chevy V8 that the #5 and #7 wires aren't accidentally transposed. They are next to each other in the firing order as well as at the cylinder head, so be careful.
