  • Firing order

    I have a 1964 GT Hawk with a 289 engine. Is there someone who can shed me some light on the firing order for that engine? Thanks

    Sean,
    Fireing order is 1 8 4 3 6 5 7 2. This is cast in the top of the intake manifold. The #1 cylinder is the front on the drivers side. Distributor rotation is counter-clockwise, #1 plug wire term on the dist. cap should be the one directly behind and closest to the carb. Again, all of this info is ni the shop manual.

        Worth mentioning that the odd-numbered cylinders are on the driver's side and the even-numbered ones are on the passenger's side.

        1960 Larkvertible V8
        1958 Provincial wagon

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

          With "drivers side" you mean left side, yes?
          Can get a tad confusing when you drive a RHD Studebaker (like in Oz.

            Hank, do you guys use terms like 'near side', 'far side', etc?

              Only when you're Driving an 1898 Studebaker Myopia Break like the one I had. Near and Far side are equestrian terms in the United States.

              Sean, The Manuals would have answered this question. Besides, they'll look impressive on your shelf at the garage.[8D]

                Actually, when you are loking at the motor sideways, the number one cylinder (Drivers side front) is slightly ahead of the number 2 cylinder (passenger side front). (assuming left hand drive as used in North America.

                Good luck, Paul

                  Yes Dwain, those terms are still in use down-under, but the younger generation seem to be firmly inoculated with LHS and RHS.
