1992 Mustang 5.0 Firing order debacle

Looked in my Ford factory service manual... NOTHING! It's not in there.

Don't have the original owners manual

And the Chilton manual says the firing order is 1,3,7,2,6,5,4,8 in one picture, the a quarter inch below the picture it says firing order is 1,5,4,2,6,3,7,8...

The Haynes manual says 1,3,7,2,6,5,4,8 counter clockwise for HO models only...

Whats the truth?!?!

For the H.O. engine:
1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8

For non H.O.:
1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8

Looking down from above, the distributor plug towers for the H.O. firing order is counter clockwise.

And why aren't you at the beach, since it's Mustang Week?

AWSOME HELP!!!

This is my first "Ford" V8. I'm used to the cylinders being numbered the way GM, Chrysler, and AMC did them on V8's (all odd numbers on one side, and all even on the other)!

As far as being at the beach... NOW, I'll be on my way in just a few minutes!

THANKS!
