IF YOU MEAN IGNITION TIMING THEN 10 DEGREES GIVE OR TAKE 2 IF STANDARD CAM, MORE FOR MILD OR LUMPY.
IF THEY ARE THE SAME AS CLEVOS THEN # 1 IS ON THE DRIVERS SIDE FRONT. TRY ANYWAY..CHEERS

No.1 cylinder on any engine is the forwardmost - look at tappet covers. One of them is closer to the front of the car than the other.

CRAPITIS!!!

People forget this is an international forum....not all steering wheels are on the correct side (right)
Northey's description is the truth but harder to discern.

If you are standing in front of the car, looking at the engine its the Front cylinder left hand side.
