Default 1978 460 Cylinder and distributor layout

A groundhog took out my F250. He chewed up the spark plug wires. So basically I have an engine with distributor and have no idea what post on the distributor goes to what cylinder. Does anyone know the following:

1. Cylinder number layout of the engine if I am looking at it from the front of the truck with the fan blade against my chest.

2. Cylinder number layout of the distributor.

Thanks,

Sam

Default firing order

Turn #1 cylinder to TDC (read on harmonic balancer) on the compression stroke (when air is forced out spark plug hole), remove ignition cap and look at which cap terminal the rotor is pointing to (this is #1 terminal on cap).

I like how that picture is of a chevy block. It's the correct ford cylinder numbering, just thought it a bit funny that they used a cheby block for the actual pic.
