    You are very smart. You must have a lot books. How about the distributor? Counterclockwise from the # 1.

    Counter from 1: 1-8-7-2-4-3-6-5

    Dist. rotates clockwise, and for refrence, the #5 tower is the one by the dwell adjustment window (points distributors only, I think HEI has it on a retainer or something)

    Also, if you are interested in grabbing a FSM for your car, try here: http://www.faxonautoliterature.com/ I have had good luck with them in the past.
