look on the cap itself, the numbers are molded into the plastic - can't really mess that one up (well maybe you can I guess, otherwise you wouldn't be asking...)

well, the numbers will be the same as you have on the right side (OEM), just match them up. Of course, #1 = #7; #2 = #8; #3 = #9; #4 = #10; #5 = #11; and #6 = #12.

really not that difficult, remember that the V12 is actually 2 inline 6's hooked together....
