Default 5.0 HO firing order

Need some help with the firing order
I accidentally pulled the distributer out without marking the position of the rotor.
Now the car is barely running
What is my best solution to getting the firing order corrected
Any help would be appreciated

pull the plugs and turn the motor over by hand so you know your not 180'd

put your finger on the #1 hole...when it goes "phsst" then stop the dial on "0" thats tdc on compression

mark the inside of the dizzy where the #1 plug terminal is. when you stab it.... make sure as it rotates down it is still pointing at that mark.
