    From front to back, the plug lead at the front of the coil goes to the 1st cylinder(nearest the radiator)

    Finishing with rear most plug lead(nearest the bulkhead) going to cylinder 4

    Cheers mate. I thought it was something like [4231]

    Plug 4 goes to 1st port (back of engine to front of car) and so on?

    Ideally need the number of lead to its corresponding hole, if you get what i mean.

    I fitted them the other day, I know I have one right as I put numbers on them, but they got rubbed off except one, judged rest by length of cable which now i'm thinking is probably wrong lol.

    The rear most coil lead goes to the rear most cylinder.

    ending with front most plug lead to front most cylinder(number 1)
