How do the plug wires go? - 1991 2.3 8 plug

So I'm buying a 1991 Ranger with the 2.3 8 plug engine off a friend of mine, ever since he did the timing belt it hasn't ran right and is low on power. I'm gonna do new plugs and wires. I think he may have put them in the wrong order or timed the cam wrong (thats for another post another day). How do the plug wires go on this engine? Anyone have pics? Assuming I'm starting from scratch. Thanks!

Might want to check if the belt has been put in correctly.

IMHO… if the four cylinders were mis-wired you WILL know about it.

Check the belt position first, then any sensors that have to do with timing, positioning sensors, make sure all is aligned.
