firing order 18436572 placement on the cap 1 is located two poles counterclockwise from connector port. connector port should be at three o clock position facing the drivers front fender Answer New to Chev v8s whats a connector port?? Answer I think it was to be "post". There are 8 brass or aluminum posts on the top of the distributor that are "fired" by the rotor. The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. My HEI distributor has number 1 as the first post colockwise past the external plugs and at about 5 o'clock when the timing is set to 10-12 degrees BTDC. Answer Remove your number one plug attach a cylinder compression gage and rotate your ing$nue until the timing mark is 12-12 degrees BTDC (Before top dead sinter) now check the gage if you have compression then your ing$nue in on its firing stroke now remove your distributor cap note which brass or aluminum posts the rotor cap is in line with that is the number one position work your way clockwise around the cop. number one is determine win you set the distributor in. you must determine the firing stroke with the compression gage or you coed get it 180 degrees of and it will spit fire and back fire.

Answer 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 is the standard firing sequence on ALL small and bigblock Chevy V8's.Do you have points or electronic?If electronic,see the part on the ca…p of HEI ignitions that sticks out from the left?Clockwise,# 1 cylinder terminal is the second one(approximately the 5'oclock position,same with points ignitions)Start with cylinder # 1.This is the cylinder on the drivers side.Very first one.Connect plug wire from Terminal # 1 to cylinder # 1.Next in line is cylinder # 8(approximately the 7 o'clock position).Connect plug wire from terminal # 8 to cylinder # 8. On the left side of engine are cylinders 1,3,5,7.On the right side of engine are cylinders 2,4,6,8.Continue the sequence above clockwise.If you have points,MSD,Crane,etc.,dont forget to connect your coil to the terminal in the top of the cap.
Will the distributor plug wire set up be the same for HEI ignition and non HEI Not sure of the year Chevy 350?
Answer The wires are different - HEI ignition wires won't work in a standard distributor - they all go in the same relative places though.
What is the correct placement of distributor wires from the spark plug to the distributor cap on a 1989 Mazda 323 SE 1.6 liter SOoC?
Correct firing order is 1 3 4 2 Your distributor cap is numbered 4 2 1 3 on the top in a anti-clockwise direction. Match the HT leads from the cap to the correspon…ding spark plug.Thats it . PW

Where on the distribter cap does the number one spark plug wire go on Chevy 350 engine with HEI ingnition?
Answer Who cares! That's not really an answer, matter of fact it's rude, people ask questions because they want a legitimate answer. #1 since it is not marked… on the cap, it is wherever you have the bug (rotor) pointed to, as this is just an electronic pickup point, it can be any one of the towers, as long as the wire connected to it is attached to the #1 plug (drivers side front). So if you need to move the distrubutor around so it doesn't hit other components, don't worry about it. As long as #1 wire goes to the same tower the bug points to when the engine is at TDC, you have your timing roughed in. This is for an older V8, I think #1 changed spark plug positions when they went to surpentine belts
Answer FACING THE DISTRIBUTOR WITH THE LITTLE DOOR TOWARD YOU, NUMBER ONE IS THE FIRST TERMINAL TO THE LEFT. THE FIRING ORDER IS 18436572 GOING IN A CLOCKWISE D…IRECTION
For a 5.0 liter distributor cap firing order what is the correct placement for plug wires on distributor I don't the firing order of the cylinders on a Chevy caprice?

For a 3.0 liter distributor cap firing order what is the correct plug placement for plug wires on distributor?
facing the car from the front... the back of the engine is plugs 1,3,5 from left to right. So the plug closest to the alternator is 1. The plugs closest to the front of the ca…r are 2,4,6 left to right. So the closest to the transmission is 6. The cap has 1,3,5 closest to rear of car and 2,4,6 closest to front of car. The computer automatically adjusts timing so placement of cap doesn't have to be exact.
For a 4.9 liter distributor cap firing order what is the correct placement for plug wires on distributor you know the firing order of the cylinders?

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 sid…e of engine, cylinders 2,4 and 6 are front to back on the passengers side.
