Here is the 48 Super Eight engine specs from Service Counselor Vol21 #11 dated June 15, 47. All planned mechanical specs for the vehicle as introduced are found in that issue which can be downloaded from the literature archive. A later issue, Vol21 #19 also has specifications which could reflect any changes to pre introduction specs.

A 48 wiring diagram can be found in the literature archive too but here is an excerpt showing the distributor cap and approximately where # 1 plug wire would be if the distributor is installed per spec. Distributor rotates counter-clockwise.
