    Charlie, Put the dizzy in (it will only go one way) without the cap. Fit the rotor arm. Turn the engine by hand until 1. the timing marks are aligned and 2. the front two valves are both closed (rocker arms are both loose). While turning the engine check the direction of rotation of the rotor arm. Put the cap over the dizzy and see which HT outlet port the rotor arm is pointing to. That is No 1. From there the firing order is 5, 3, 6, 2, 4, 1. That will be good enough to start the motor and you can then time it properly however you normally do it - with a light, by trial and error whatever. HTH Bob
