Default what order do the spark plug wires go?

im doing some work on my friends civic sohc (im an rx7 guy) its a 95, and i was just wondering what order the spark plug wires should be attached to the distributer cap? one other thing that was wondering is, where can i find a diagram for the fuel system? i need to replace the fuel filter but i cant find the fuel pump. (im asuming that the procedure would be similar to that of diconnecting the fuel pump wires in my fc. thanks ahead.

steve

and if any of you are wondering, my car is a 87 t2 with s5 turbo and mani and a **** load of other stuff (maybe like 5k worth)

firing order goes 1-3-4-2 #1 being the closest to the tming belt

distributor order goes as

3-4
1-2 looking directly at the cap with the distributor on the engine


fuel pump is in the fuel tank and can be accessed under the rear seat.

if you need to replace the fuel filter why do you want to know where the fuel pump is located???

the filter is located under the hood on the firewall....... just remove the gas cap to relieve the pressure then replace the filter .. very easy job
