1-2-4-3 firing order in a clockwise rotation is correct. Without a timing light with the pluga out you must find the timing marks and on number 0ne compression stroke set the timing mark at 8 degrees BTDC and the rotor pointing directly at number one wire on the cap. Just got through with this task on my 960. Timing marks are faint, a little rusty and in a position that is hard to see. Had to use a bore scope to see them well enough, hope yours are better. If it won't start advance or retard the distributor just a tad while cranking til it does, when it starts and warmed up check throttle response as well as idle smoothness. Beware as soon as it starts check your oil pressure. If no oil pressure likely you have lost the oil pump hex drive and you probably will have to remove the oil pan to find it. Hard to fine tune the timing without a light but if you are a pretty good mechanic it can be done.
