Correct your Bentley manuals...fun with firing orders.

The have the firing order incorrect for C900's. Ugh, how annoying.

If you are facing the car, it's this way:

1--2
3--4


not this way:

4--3
2--1

Head scratch... I think you have the order right, but isn't the #1 the upper left node on the cap? Now I have to go out and have a look.

1--4
3--2

Edit: Baah or is it

1--3
2--4

I just did this the other day and now I can't recall. I think it's cast in the intake or the head somewhere too.

Yup I ran into this problem a few weeks back. I did the trial and error method switching out the wires I swear I tried about 8 different combinations until it started. Then I scratched out what Bentley had and penned in the right order. I should really mark up the dizzy cap to leave no uncertainty.

1342, it is stamped on the valve cover. Easy to find which electrode spot on the dizzy is '1' by having the motor at TDC with the dizzy cap off then lining it up correctly.

Just a tip in case there is no internet handy.
