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.
