Aaarrgghh !!!
I poured over that reference, but was looking for a numeric firing order & 
just couldn't see the english text.

Thanks !!!  Don't think I'll need more -- even at 1/8 scale I don't think a 
few degrees either side of TDC will matter.

John,
   The Clerget being a 4-cycle rotary with all connecting rods connecting to 
a single 'crank' in the crank shaft (I dont know the correct 
terminology) -the firing sequence inherently has to be every other cylinder 
(1 3 5 7 9 2 4 6 8).
This is also stated in the section on the Clerget in Scale Aircraft 
Drawings, vol 1.
Let me know if you need timing numbers.
regards
Sanjeev
