The firing order on distributor cap for 77 Chevy 350?
4 people found this useful
\n. \n Firing order \n. \n. \nThe distributor cap is numbered 1 8 4 3 6 5 7 2 in a clockwise rotation. I believe you are probably asking a different question though.\n. \nMore than likely what you really want to know is where #1 is at on the cap. This is not as easy as just picking where #1 …should be as many times someone has installed the distributor in such a way that #1 is in a different location than the books say is should be. \n. \nto find where #1 should be on your distributor turn the engine until the timing marks line up at the balancer. as long as it is close to TDC (top dead center 0 on the balancer or timing tab) this is good enough. Remove the distributor cap and look to see where the rotor tip is pointing. This is going to be either #1 or #6. If you install the wires using the post the rotor pointed at as #1 and the engine backfires out of the intake you need to install #1 exactly opposite on the cap and rewire the rest to the firing order given above.\n. \nOne other way to do this is to remove #1 spark plug (drivers side front on a Chevy) place you finger over the hole and have someone bump the starter. When you feel your finger being blown out of the hole this is the compression stroke for #1. Align the marks at the balancer again and then check the rotor position. This is #1 firing position and with the wires install IN THE FIRING ORDER given above the engine should at least try to start. The actual ignition timing will need to be set after it is running.

How do you get a 1979 Chevy half ton 350 running if it will turn over but it has no fire after it has a new distributor cap rotor plugs and wires?
The most common problem with a no spark condition is a faulty ignition module. The module is located under the distributor cap and is held on by two small hex head screws.
What is the firing order for a Chevy half ton truck 1990 350 motor and where would you start on the distributor cap?
%REPLIES%. Answer . 18436572-#1 is the front plug on the drivers side--bring the #1 piston to TDC on the compression stroke & put #1 plug wire on that position on the distributor cap & continue with the firing order.. Answer . 18436572\n. \nusually the no 1 post on the distributer points to…wards the no#1 cylinder the cylinders are numbered like this front to back on the drivers side 1 3 5 7 and fron to back on the passenger side\n2 4 6 8 that is if you are standing in font of the vehichle facing it. Answer . \ndo this in a clock wise direction around the distributor. (MORE)
The order is on the stock intake manifold. It is 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 1,3,5,7 is on the left bank(driver side) and 2,4,6,8 is on theright bank. The distributor rotates clockwise.
\n1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2,\n Answer \n. \n. \nThe firing order is usually stamped on the intake manifold. To get the right order on the distributor cap, remove the distributor cap. Remove the #1 spark plug. Place your finger in the spark plug hole. Manually turn the motor clockwise. Compressed air… will "blow by" your finger when the #1 cylinder is reaching the top of the compression stroke. Verify "top dead center" on the timing mark/harmonic balancer. Look at the distributor. The rotor will be pointing to where the #1 spark plug wire will go. Place the cap back on the distributor, put the #1 wire where the rotor pointed, follow the firing order stamped on the intake CLOCKWISE around the distributor cap.\n. \n. \nOk, I had the same problem this weekend. Somehow I mixed up the wires, even thought I pulled one at a time. I have a 94 GMC suburban. From the front of the truck, #1 is at 5 oclock on the distrubutor, the first pole clockwise from the mounting screw that points towards the front right headlight. There are two mounting screws for the dist cap. One towards the cab firewall and one closest to the coil. That screw, one pole clockwise, is number one cylinder on the rotation. Rotor turns clockwise. I hope this helps someone more than trying to stick your finger over the plug hole and be Stretch ArmStrong by turning the ignition at the same time. (MORE)
Answer . \n1-6-5-4-3-2-1\nstart w/ post next to drivers side of intake manifold. Answer . \nThe firing order is 165432. Number one is driver side front to rear 135 and driver side is 246. Rotor in dist. cap rotates clockwise.
How do you get the distributor and firing order correct after you pull the distributor and wires on a Chevy 350?
Answer . You should have had the #1 piston at TDC, and marked the location of the distributor. You could then just reverse everything. Now you are going to have to get the #1 piston at TDC, install the distributor with the rotor pointing to the #1 plug position on the distributor cap. A good repa…ir manual will help with all this if you can't get it done. Most auto parts stores sell them. Faceing the engine from the front, the #1 plug is the first one on your right, driver's side, the fireing order is 18436572. (MORE)

1-8-6-5-4-3-7-2- firing order is number 1 should point at number 1 cylinder.than go clockwise from there.
the fireing order on the 350 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 and number 1 on the engne is on the driver side front .... you will need to put it on top dead center , witch requires you to remove # 1 plug and turn engine until you feel compression ... then at the damper on the bottom pully is etched numbers starti…ng with zero ( 0 ) you will need to put the flag close to that and take the distibutor cap off .. take note where the rotory button is and where the contact is that's where you start your fireing order with # 1 in a counter clockwise direction ... and if your unsure of where all the cylinders are all the odd # are on the driver side and the even are on the pasenger side !!! this method will insure your order is correct and you will save time ! good luck and i hope this helps Douglas from bufore , ga (MORE)

What is the firing order of the spark plug wires to the distributor cap for 1987 Chevy camaro 350 engine?
18436572 The #1 cylinder piston must be up on the compression stroke when the rotor button is pointing to #1 plug wire on the distributer cap. The firing order is counter clockwise around the cap.
her is a link to a diagram, http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=17192, that should be all you need to know about that.
If it is a 305 (5.0) or the 350 (5.7) the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 . Dist. turns clock wise. even numbers are on the passenger side of the engine odd numbers on the drivers side , hope this helps
The distributor rotates in the clockwise direction. The number 1 cylinder wire goes on the first wire tower above the flat spot as the rotor turns. By the flat spot I mean the area where the ignition module goes through the distributor cap. Hope that is helpful. An illustration would be much eas…ier than a written explanation, but I can't post an illustration here. . (MORE)
The distributor cap order for a Chevy 283 varies depending on theyear of the motor. A 1975 to 1991 has the number one cylinder atthe top just to the left of center.

1-5-3-6-2-4 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 is the firing order for all small block v-8 chevys up to 1999
no, but you can buy the repair manuel at a auto store ( try chiltons repair manuel. for your model)
If the distributor is in the engine then remove the cap first. Now pull # 1 plug out , it's the first 1 on front right side of the engine. Now put your finger over the hole tight and get someone to crank the engine over while you are watching the rotor turn. as soon as it blows air out from under yo…ur finger pay attition to were the rotor was pointing to and that will be #1 on the cap. Bumb engine over slowly a little at a time while doing this. HOPE THIS HELPS (MORE)
pull #1 plug and rotate engine til you feel compression starting to build. then watch timing marks to come up on the balancer. remove cap and see where the rotor is pointing that's number one then follow the firing order.
The wireing cylinder numbers on the cap is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 clockwise. That will be the plug wires. The cylinder numbers are, Drivers side head front to back 1-3-5-7 The other head front to back is 2-4-6-8

What is the firing order for a Chevy half ton truck 1974 350 motor and where would you start on the distributor cap?
Firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 clockwise on the distributor cap. The cylinder numbers where the plug wires go on the spark plugs are. Driver's side head front to rear is 1-3-5-7 The other head........................ is 2-4-6-8 Now you will need a helper, First take the distributor cap loos…e so you can lift it up and see the rotor when it turns. Now take the #1 spark plug out and put your finger over the plug hole in the head. Get your helper to bump the engine over with the key real slow a little at a time while your holding your finger on the hole and as soon as it blows air out from under you finger pay attention to where the rotor is pointing when it does. Then mark the side of the distributor with something. You may need to bump the engine over again now that you have the fill for it and know it won't hurt you. When you have your mark on the dist. where the rotor is pointing when it blows out from under your finger and stops blowing. Then set the cap back on the dist. and the spot on the cap that is lined up with your mark is where # 1 wire goes to. Then wire it clockwise, like it says at the top. If #1 is not about 5 oclock on the dist. cap when looking down on it, Then you have the distributor in wrong. With the #1 pistion all the way up on the compression stroke / TDC/ Top Dead Center, the rotor should be pointing to the #1 cylinder on the engine. That is if you put a string on the #1 plug hole and run it to the distributor. The rotor should be in a stright line with the #1 cylinder. TDC on the compression stroke is when it blows air out from under your finger. I hope I did not confuse you. NEUTZ (MORE)

As viewed from the top of the motor with the c/l of the engine being at 12 o'clock, the first position on the driver side at about 11 o'clock is number one. The others follow around in a clockwise direction as viewed from the top.
Standing in front with the hood open, looking at the distributor, number one would be at the 5:30 position on the cap, from there clockwise it goes 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. I am assuming this is a 4.3L engine.
Standing in front looking at the distributor, #1 would be at the six o'clock position, from there clockwise would be 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.
Standing in front of the vehicle with hood open, looking at the distributor, #1 would be at the 5:00 position on the cap, from there clockwise would be 1, 8, 4, 3, 6, 5, 7, 2.
Standing in front of the vehicle with the hood open looking at the distributor, #1 is aprox on the 5 O-clock position on the cap, from there clockwise it goes 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. Assuming this is a 4.3L engine.

Can i get a diagram of the firing order for spark plug wires to distributor cap on a 1989 4by4 4.3 Chevy truck distributor cap?
Clockwise, 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. Looking from the front, #1 would be located at the 5:30 position on the distributor cap. Cylinders 1, 3 and 5 are front to back on the drivers side of engine, cylinders 2,4 and 6 are front to back on the passengers side.
At spark plug location number 1. Number 1 plug is on the drivers side front of engine.
Bring the engine to #1 TDC and take off the cap. The tower that the rotor is pointing at is for the #1 spark plug wire. Then, going clockwise, the next wire is #8, then 4, 3, 6, 5, 7, & 2.
Impossible to answer without know what make, model, year, and engine size you are asking about. None of which you list.
there is no hard fast rule here. but typically with the cap off and number one cylinder at TDC on compression stroke. the rotor will point at number one cylinder on the engine.
All distributors are different, you will need to find the firingorder, and sequence for your particular engine and model of vehicleby consulting a service manual. Once you have that order you willknow the location of the number one cylinder, and the correspondingwire location on the distributor cap,… each plug wire will have adesignated port on the cap, they will need to match the specs inorder to work properly.
