I pretty much like everything else in the pedal chain feeding an OD/Distortion pedal. To me, distortions and especially overdrives are kind of like amps in themselves in that they are intended to simulate the way an amp behaves in certain conditions. So, to my ears, they sound best when treated that way on a pedalboard. I've been known to break this rule, though
Same thing with the leslie sim…it's basically an amp simulator, though it's mainly used like a phaser or chorus. So I like to put mine as far at the end of the chain as possible, usually right before an OD but after anything else EXCEPT for a delay if I'm using one. I typically don't use a leslie effect in conjunction with other effects (except some overdrive, occasionally), so it doesn't end up making that much of a difference.
For the volume pedal, it depends what you want to do with it. If it's to cut noise between songs/guitar changes, put it at the end. If it's to add some swell effects, you might want to put it before a delay if you're using one.
