    The Fords are different than the GM's as far as cylinder designation.

    #1 on a Ford is the first cylinder on the PASS side. Also unlike a GM their isn't an odd and even side. Fords are 1, 2, 3, 4, down the pass side and 5, 6, 7, and 8 down the driver side.

    Absolutely the firing order is different than a GM. And Fords have a few different firing orders depending on what exactly your working on.

    You can find pictures and wiring diagrams there too
    A google search will turn these up too
    Like B&B said....it depends on which engine you are working on

    I think the windsors had two different firing orders also - depending on the year. It's been awhile but from the drag racing stuff that's what I remember.
