Stupid Distributor/Firing Order Question

    I'm going to ask this to make sure I got this right so please don't laugh: Does the 1342 firing order on a 1725 run counter-clockwise?

    I had two wires (2 and 3) come out of my distributor cap that I hadn't noticed which may explain the car suddenly stalling when I stop. I put the wires back in and tested: The engine is now very strong but it is also idling REALLY rough idling now. Going to order new wires and another cap tomorrow from Rick since they look really worn from sitting to see if this remedies the problem. I want to make sure the issues isn't just me being stupid and our distributor runs clockwise instead. Please advise and so many thanks in advance!
