Plug lead orientation: The distributor on the MGB rotates anti-clockwise as you look down on the top of the cap, and the firing order is 1, 3, 4, 2 with the cylinders being counted from the water-pump end to the flywheel end. Start by determining where in the distributor cap No.1 plug lead goes, then count the rest from there.Made some progress on Badger today. Learned a bit more but had to stop due to not having the right tools. Got the fan blade off, removed the spark plugs, dfiring order. #1 Mgb firing order. Ricks 1980 MGB Michael K.

I hope this helps and good luck Mgb firing order.
