Help! Which plug leads go where!

Ok, so I did a silly thing...

When I was laying up one of my Minari's I took off the plug leads as part of my theft-prevention methods. Now I've come to the point where I have to move it again and I don't know which plug leads go where!

Does anybody have a diagram of the distributor cap top and the cylinders? Alternatively, does anybody know the firing order and in which direction the rotor arm turns?

I need to get it running tomorrow!

Member car:

33 16v

Firing order is 1-3-2-4 (cylinder numbers are cast into the block)

Set the car to TDC and check the position rotor arm, it should be pointing in the general direction of cylinder 1.

Refit the distributor cap and fit lead 1 in line with the tip of the rotor arm (hope that makes sense). Connect the rest of the leads as per the firing order working in a clock wise direction around the distributor cap.
