if you know your exact model ignition, you can download the instruction manual for it here...

that should give you a lot of info towards figuring out what your coil configuration is. as far as your rear cylinder misfire, it could be an ignition related problem or as simple as a fouled plug or a bad plug wire - just need to do a little troubleshooting. welcome to the forum!
