Re: 74 or 77 ford chateau V8

Since you have posted your Q here, I am assuming that the engine in question is either a 429 or a 460 big block. In which case the firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8.

If it is a small block it could be either that or a different firing order, depending on which motor it is.

Sorry, I forgot to answer your Q about rebuilding the motor.

"Ford Performance" by Pat Ganahl and published by S-A Design is very good. You can get it from Amazon.
