    Barring some bizarre modification, like if you've somehow spatuled a V-8

    into the engine compartment, there is only one correct answer: 1, 3, 4,
    2,

    By using a cap from say an MG. The order will look completely different
    on cap. I think that is his problem. The caps look the same but are at a
    different angle. Thus his number one is now number three. Later Dave the

    OK Group I guess it is time to let the cat out of the bag. There is nothing
    wrong with my cap and I do have the stock original engine in my car (engine
    number matches the plate on the car).
    When I went to help Charles Gould out with his car I had noticed that his
    firing order appeared different than the one that I had on my car. Since his
    car was built after mine according the the chassis number I decided that my
    car should also have the same firing order as his. When I arrived home I
    looked at my order and it was in fact different than the one on his car. I
    verified with Charles that his firing order was what it was and then I placed
    mine the same way and voila', my car purred like a kitten and I was able to
    take my very first every Amphicar ride.
    I would like to thank Charles for the opportunity to help him work on his
    car as I would otherwise not have known about the firing order difference.

    To those of you who scoff at me I would like to point out that our cars
    are unique in many ways and that even when you think that we know all about
    them.....something new comes out.

    I would also like to point out that if not for this group of sharing
    individuals we would not be able to alert others who may experience
    difficulties to what we know.
