Crank angles

Does anyone know what the crank angle at BDC on the intake stroke is on a Ford 302? It is 540 degrees for a SB Chevy (sorry about the language!) and it would be easy to assume that it is the same, but we all know what assuming does!

Thanks guys

Thanks Jac.
Are they the same then? I thought it was 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 for the Chevy and 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 for the 302? Although, just to confuse myself further, I should say mine actually has a 351 firing order so it's 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8. :confused:
 
All the same even 13726548 is , just flipped from end to end. The numbers mean nothing other than allowing humans to figure it out.
On any 4 stroke BDC Intake open is always 540° after TDC firing.
