Cylinder numbers/order

Forgive me if this has been covered, I feel like the info must be on this site somewhere , but n hour of searching and I haven't found an answer.

First off I understand this doesn't really matter as all my plug wires are about the same length, but I would like to know which cylinder is considered 1,2,3,&4. I just got a set of NGK wires and they are numbered while my current ones are not. My ocd won't let me just toss them on in whatever random order. I would like to have them labeled correctly so later on down the line if I have any issues with a particular cylinder I will know which one it is.

That n I'd like to learn something new about my car today:)

Thanks for the welcome.

I'm two plugs down and its raining so I'm waiting it out.

Now I have a fair amount of oil in my plugs. From my knowledge of hondas this is typically the plug seals. Any other ideas/ opinions?

It like clockwork on these things.

Be careful what you wish for.

I think that was code for yes. Plan on valve cover gaskets and seals in the future.

He means you're right. Spark plug tube seals, done at the same time as valve cover gaskets. Easy to do.

OK good deal. Well its gonna stay like that for now as I've emptied my tune-up budget on more immediate issues (I.e. the car having NO brakes when I bought it). Good to know its not something major tho.

Rain stopped, other two NGK plugs and wires on, time for a test drive. Old plugs were worn down worse than my kids crayons so should be a noticeable improvement.

Thanks everyone
