In Spark Plugs and Wires
You made a terrible mistake and lost track of which plug wire went where while attempting to change your wires could anyone help you?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nLocate the #1 plug wire position on the distributor cap. It's usually marked with a "1". Next, locate the number one cylinder. If this is a GM …V8 engine, the number 1 cylinder is the first plug on the left bank (driver's side). They're numbered like this:\n. \nengine rear\n. \n8 --- --- 7\n. \n6 --- --- 5\n. \n4 --- --- 3\n. \n2 --- --- 1\n. \nengine front\n. \nNow all you need to know is the firing order. On a GM V8 the order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. So, install the number one wire at the distributor and then hook it to the number 1 plug. Next, hook up the next wire to the next position on the distributor clockwise from the number 1 position. This will be the number 8 wire. Hook it to the number 8 cylinder. Follow around the distributor in the firing order... next would be number 4, number 3, number 6, and so on. That's all you need to rehook all the wires in the proper order. Double check your work.
