Remove the plugs and try turning it over by the fan belt.  #1 should be marked on the distributor and in the front cylinder is #1,always has been like the others have said.  Like Eric said, firing order is 1-3-4-2 on 4 cyl. engines.  8 cyl. is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

Only on GM's that is...

There is instructions right there in front of your nose on the coil.

1 2 V

Number one cylinder to the left, number two is to the right of it.

If you spin the coil around, it probably tells you how to tell three and four apart.

This same method works on Dodge truck engines to differentiate between the straight six and a V8.

Grab ahold of the left cylinder's spark plug wire and if it jolts ya while the timing mark goes by that's #1!

I'm surprised they haven't told you to check the muffler bearing to see if it's working!

 8 cyl. is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

 

This is not always true. Some of the Ford V-8's were, 1-5-4-8-6-3-7-2  and International is timed off of #8 cylinder
There could be others but these are the ones that come to mind.
