Which way do you start putting the plug wires on a distributor cap on a 350?

I assume your working on a S.B. Chevy 350 - If so the rotor turns clockwise. turn the engine to TDC on the compression stroke, and wire the cap starting at the tower where the rotor it pointing. 18436572 is the firing order, and the drivers side bank is 1357 from the front, and the passenger side is 2468

There is no real word that starts with "a" that means tornado. However there is something called an anticyclonic tornado.

What is the correct procedure of ignition on turn 'screw' clockwise wait some time turn counter-clockwise or something to read OBD 1 codes on a 1995 200sx 1.6 SE?

The ECU is located behind the center console on the drivers side. It is accessible by removing the plastic cover panel right next to the gas pedal. The ECU is a metal box with a screw on the side covered by a piece of tape. Peal back the tape to get at the screw. With the ignition in the "On" position, turn the screw all the way clockwise, hold for at least 2 seconds, turn it all the way counterclockwise. Your CEL will now start flashing out any codes stored in the ECU. The codes are two digit numbers. The first number is signaled by long flashes, there will be a two second pause, and the second number will be indicated by a series of short flashes. Long-long-long-pause-short-short-short-short = 0304 (KS fault). There may be more than 1 code in the ECU, they will be flashed out sequentially and the whole sequence will repeat. To clear the codes from the ECU, follow this sequence: clockwise, hold, counterclockwise, hold, clockwise, hold, counterclockwise.
