Default Spark plug wire order/connection

Is it the same for all 4.0L SOHC with distributorless ignition? So front to rear the cylinders are 1,2,3,on the Left..and 4,5,6 on the Right. Then going Left to Right on the coil it is 1,2,3 at the back and 5,6,4 at the front?

Not the best pictures because I took them with a video camera, but you can maybe see the numbers on the wires and where they go to right now.

Picture is based on if you are standing in front of the truck looking at the engine. So yes you are correct with the connections.

The numbers are also printed on the top of the coil pack

Thanks STL. I do have the connections right but I labeled the wires wrong..4 should be 6 and 6 should be 4. I'll just leave it for now. Thanks again.

STL I got them from a local speed shop..K&K Racing in Stratford, ON, Canada. I forget the brand name. They not surprisingly were made in China. I carefully put them on one at a time, applying Vaseline to prevent rust. But I dropped one nut into the V of the motor! A magnet didn't make an obvious connection. I managed to get it out and knew then that it was made of Stainless Steel.
So no rust prevention required. Just forward a pic to a local shop of them..and they should be able to help you. If not let me know and I will try to help further. John

Will have to look around when I get some free time.

I will print off the pic and take to work. Some of the hot rod people may have a hook up.
