Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see Firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4. I agree #1 is usually kind of close to the front so wires aren't crossing over the top of each other. That engine is an Allis-Chalmers 2000 series 265 and 301 cubic inches, not a 230 or 262 BUDA.

If only some wires were off and you know the firing order you should be able to put the rest back working from the ones that stayed in place.

On the four cylinder AC's with a distributor, number one started out typically being the post closest to number one. But on that Buda based six, I haven't a clue.

I would pull the coil wire, remove # 1 plug, put a finger over the plug hole, bump the engine over with the starter (make sure the tractor is in neutral) until I felt the compression coming up, then look at where the rotor is pointing. With compression coming up in# 1 cylinder the rotor will be approaching the post for the # 1 wire. I would do this as often distributor get pulled and reinstalled over the years, often they get turned during the process so # 1 may not be where it was when it left the factory, or a manual shows.

Today's Featured Article - Timing Your Magneto Ignition Tractor - by Chris Pratt. If you have done major engine work or restored your tractor, chances are you removed the magneto and spark plug wires and eventually reached the point where you had to put it all back together and make it run. On our first cosmetic restoration, not having a manual, we carefully marked the wires, taped the magneto in the position it came off, and were careful not to turn the engine over while we had these components off. We thought we could get by with this since the engine ran perfectly and would not need any internal work. After the cleanup and painting was done, we began reassembly and finally came to t ...
