Default 1948 Ford firing order

GHi Fellas: I had a misfiring ignition, took it all down. I can't remember the firing order so I can trace my wiring. HELP Please, thanks, Jack

Thanks guys: I spent about 3 hours putting it back together today and I see now that I mistook 1-2-3-4 on drivers side. So I did it all wrong no wonder it wouldn't run and kept backfiring back through the carburetor. Will try again tomorrow. Thanks for the info. Jack
