Default Distributor cap Firing Order

I have the Firing Order but I do not know which is number 1. Any one have a picture of the cap and what order they are in.

you can put it about where you want as long as you have number one cylinder on TDC drop the distributor in and where it seats go from there.
Typically though it should be about the 2:00 oclock position.. And on alot of caps number 1 is marked either on outside of cap or inside. Firing order is counter clockwise 15426378

Mine is not marked anywhere. It is popping through the carburetor. I did change the firing order he had on the truck but the number ones location I was not sure if I started in the correct spot.
