Firing order / First spot on the distributor for a 94 xj?

Hey guys - could anyone fill me in on the firing order and the first prong for a 94 xj? I think its 1-5-3-6-2-4 but I don't know where one starts. I could be wrong about the order too.. any help would be greatly appreciated!

I searched google and found this: "If you look on the front of the intake manifold the firing order is stamped on it. It may need a cleaning to see it"
And try this: 4.0 L = 1,5,3,6,2,4. The cylinders are numbered, 1 is the front cylinder in realtion to the front grill and the 6th cylinder is the cylinder closest to the fire wall, all the way in the back. Hope this helps.

Hey there, I had this exact same issue after my perfect little diagram was lost in the wind. On your dizzy, there is a square peg and a round peg. They are were the screws are screwed into. From the square peg, going clockwise, it is the next on over. I'll try and see if I can take a picture later tonight. Good luck!

Look on top of your distributor cap. Cylinder #1 is usually marked on it.
