The firing order can go like this, but on the 1995 there is a brown wire that needs to be disconnected for setting the timing. I think the 1985 distributor is the one with the coil on top of the distributor cap? And a vacuum advance, a vacuum hose to the distributor? Need to know these things.

I'm assuming your running the 85's carburated and distributor/coil. Firing order is the same between the two. 18436572.
