A search of the archives brought up a list of nearly every other model of AC, all 1-2-4-3, and none of them CCW, so I guessed it to be a safe bet that the D14 was the same.
When daylight hit, I confirmed that none of the wires had "migrated", and found that the distributor was so far advanced that it was firing back through the carburetor. I backed it up nearly 15-degrees (or, "a lot", by the measuring device I had.) It purrs like a kitten now, and runs so smooth it won't even vibrate nuts and bolts off the gas tank!
-Now if I only knew where to look for the timing mark, I'd be able to tell if my timing-light agrees with my ear!
(I couldn't resist a ride around the yard. That "hi-nowhere-low" lever is a pretty nifty feature!)
