Neighbors cows pulled/chewed the spark plug wires of my 2010 and I don't have a manual. They pulled them from the plugs and right out of the distributor. Does anyone have information on the sequence or firing order so I can put new wires on and get this unit going again?

Many times #1 is stamped on cap. If not you will have to bring engine to TDC (mark on crank pully) lokk at rotation of rotor typically clockwise. Getting more technical pull #1 spark plug (the front plug) turn engine over to compression stroke line up TDC note location of rotor that is you #1 wire and proceed as Murf fire order. ....

Probably like chewing gum for the cows, I'd get tired of alfalfa for every meal too. ....

That is right funny (not having to fix it). Don't tell us you had the tractor over there doing a free favor for your neighbor. Was this the only damage they did? ....

Not so much a free favor, a bit of give and take, but it was parked in the arena so it could be ciltivated, they got out and seemed to really like the tractor. Other than a small ground wire, the yellow plug wires were all they really liked. ....

Cows aren't always as dumb as we'd like to think they are.

They quickly learn that a tractor , or even just the sound of a diesel, means dinner is on the way. As a result they crowd around it and starting thinking of food. Your wires are a good example of that.

It also however can work to your advantage sometimes too. The property next to our little airport used to have bad fences, the cows would routinely break through and found the nice grass (we call it a runway) particularly tasty.

I quickly learned the easiest way to get them back home was to just start the tractor and drive slowly right past the cows and in the hole in their fence. I'd make a big circle on their land while a few people blocked them from getting back to our place when I left again. Then we'd stitch up the fence, again.

Those goofy cows would make one heck of a racket for a few hours when they realized they'd only been taken for a walk, not dinner.

Best of luck. ....
