Need firing order and timing pattern for vw

Hello to all vw fans. My father has a 71 vw that he is planning to baja. The existing problem is he is unsure if the engine is a 1600 or a 40 horse. He needs diagrams to both engine types for firing orders and timing pattern. Any knowledge to these things would be helpful because we all know that the engine is one of your crucial points to your converting over to baja. All replys are thankful for.

For an additional option, you can check out this vw parts dealer. I think they have lots of parts in store for volks parts seekers.

Here is a photo of the firing order of an aircooled VW engine.

Here is a article for timing the engine with videos.
