pick nr 1 on distributor

I have set my 390 on TDC and marked it on the MSD distributor.
The mark is right between 2 connectors so wich one is the best to pick?

The terminal before the tdc mark you placed on the distributor, in direction of rotation

Don't forget it runs CCW on the sbf's, when you move the wires around. If I'm not right on this, someone will come in and correct it for you. But, I am pretty sure ccw is correct. One of my tractors is an old 1952 Ford 8N tractor and you would not believe how many people on that forum complain about theirs not running right and no power and what a piece of junk they have....until they become informed that the dist. runs ccw and how to put the plug wires on it correctly in the right order...suddenly it is the greatest tractor on the planet....lol
