Can the number plug wire be put in any position on a distributor if it is set at top dead center on new motor?
Can the number (1)? plug wire be put in any position on a distributor if it is set at top dead center on new motor. Many will say no, BUT early model it was possible. If you are setting up an old points, early HEI or electronic (fomoco mopar) CARBURATED it can be done. IF you are working on a TFI or MPI NO. The spark AND injectors have to be in sync, they MUST be set up to manufacturers specs.
1970 ford mustang 302 windsor motor firing order 15426378 where on the distributor is number one plug lead?
What position should the rotor be in when it is firing in the number one position and the piston is TDC and the timing marks are 0-0?
The distributor cap order for a Chevy 283 varies depending on the year of the motor. A 1975 to 1991 has the number one cylinder at the top just to the left of center. The 1967 to 1974 distributor has the number one cylinder at the top just to the right of center. The firing order is 1, 8, 4, 3, 6, 5, 7, 2.
It could be any one of the contacts. When the distributor was put in, depending on what type of motor it is, number one could be anywhere. You will need to bring number one cylinder to top dead center on the compression stroke and see where the rotor is pointing. That will be number one and set the rest of the plugs from that.
How do you reset distributor on a ford 50 motor after engine is cranked without distibutor installed?
You need to manually rotate the engine and set the number one cylinder at Top Dead Center (TDC) before re-insalling the distributor. Hopefully, you made a mark on the distributor that relates its position to the engine in orde to re-install it as it was. If you forgot to make a mark, try to remember in which direction the rotor was pointing before you removed the distributor (assuming the engine was at TDC) and re-install…
When the distributor has been removed and the engine turned over what is the procedure for getting timing set right when reinstalling the distributor?
Where on the distributor cap is the number one plug wire located on a 1990 Blazer with the four point three liter six cylinder engine?
1-3-2-4 distributor rotor turns counter-clockwise cylinder layout: FRONT OF CAR 2 1 4 3 On the distributor cap, #1 position points toward the PASSENGER REAR of the car, and is probably also marked on the cap. #1 cylinder uses the SHORTEST spark plug wire. Then #3 distributor cap position points toward the PASSENGER FRONT of the car, and uses a longer spark plug wire. Then, going counter-clockwise, is #2 distributor cap position, then #4 dist…
Yes it does. As long as the effort to hold the object in a steady position remains the same, then the number of motor units needed to keep it in that position remains the same. It is only when the force, or effort, required to do a specific task changes does the number of motor units needed to accomplish the task change.
Do not adjust timing on anything from the distributor cap. You can adjust timing by moving the distributor. - You need a timing light and timing needs to be at top dead center to start. Then make a visible mark on base of distributor and engine block so you know where distributor was when you started. That's in case you need to start over. - Loosen the bolt that holds the distributor. Only loosen…
It is under the distributor cap on the left side of it. That's while standing in front of the engine. It is bolted to the distributor plate and has an electrical wires pluged into it. The electric wires on the right side of the distributor goes to the ignition module.( It's on the Rt. side standing in front of the motor. You do not have to pull the distributor.)
What cylinder do you bring up to compression stroke and then where do you point the rotor bug to fire the motor on a 2001 Chevy 4.3 liter?
What would cause a 1985 crown Victoria not to start after changing the timing chain entire distributor unit and the coil Car only backfires but will not start despite moving the distributor?
The timing is out. You have to check your timing marks for the chain. You need to make sure the distributor is in the correct position. Number one cylinder has to be at the top of it's travel and the distributor rotor pointing at that wire in the cap. If you think it's right, there is still a possibility that you're out by 180 degrees. Start by checking the distributor location first as it's easier…
Distributor has been pulled and now needs to be put back? Get the number one cylinder to TDC, top dead center, put the distributor in and see where the rotor is. Set the distributor to the closest contact on the cap and call that No. 1. Put the rest of the wires in the correct order and set the timing with a light after it is running. The distributor can be put in and any…
