First thing I would do is change the fuel filter and see what the fuel looks like that comes out of it.
Caution:relieve pressure from fuel system before disconnecting fuel filter
Then if the fuel quality looks Ok and it still doesn't want to start,then check fuel pressure and see if the fuel pressure is good.But be sure that spark and compression are good.

I suggest you pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual from your parts store or local library, as they have the firing order photo in there and a picture's worth a thousand words.

Also, typically the firing order is on the manifold or emission sticker. Most caps are marked with #1. Find the direction of rotation and then just follow the firing order matching the wires from the cap in order to the proper cylinder (which are also marked on each respective cylinder as well).


For the later E150, you can check the autolibrary.org link I have below in my signature file.
