#1 is the front of the motor facing the radiator.
Look at page 21 in your haynes manual, note the position of the two
woodruff (half moon) keys on the front of the crankshaft. On all
Austin motors these keys are put at TDC for #1 cylinder. If you note
these keys are in line with the first journal, not the 6th. This
means #1 cylinder is at the front.
I have always worked on my 3000, 100 and A90 accordingly. All my cars
run smooth like glass.
