What is the starting point on a distributor cap for wires on a 1968 ford mustang and do you go clockwise or counterclockwise?

You don't mention what engine you have , so here goes : -------------------------------------------------------------------------- The 200 cubic inch ( 3.3 L ) straight 6 cylinder spark plug firing order is ( 1 - 5 - 3 - 6 - 2 - 4 ) The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE Start at the marked # 1 position which faces away from the engine and go CLOCKWISE The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered 1 to 6 , from front to rear ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The V8 engines ( 289 / 302 / 390 / 427 and 428 ) have a spark plug firing order ( 1 - 5 - 4 - 2 - 6 - 3 - 7 - 8 ) The distributor rotor turns COUNTERCLOCKWISE Start at the marked # 1 position which faces to the rear and slightly towards the drivers side and go COUNTERCLOCKWISE The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered : firewall 4 - 8 3 - 7 2 - 6 1 - 5 front

Why does my 1970 k2500 sb 350 backfire through carb new distributor rotor coil etc rotor pointed at number one plug on compression stroke engine starts then dies and the engine runs in revers when di?

Your timing is still off. Turn the distributor....just a very small amount....and try again. Try clockwise and counter clockwise until you get it to start and run. Then get a timing light on it and set the timing where it should be.

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

What is another name for tornado that start with a letter a?

There is no real word that starts with "a" that means tornado. However there is something called an anticyclonic tornado. An anticyclonic tornado is a rare variety of tornado that spins opposite of the normal direction (i.e. it spins clockwise if in the northern hemisphere and counterclockwise if in the southern.)

What causes an AC 220 motor to spin counter-clockwise?

The inter changing of either the start winding or the run winding.

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.

Where do you start on distributor for firing order 93 Chevy 350?

Bring the engine to #1 TDC and take off the cap. The tower that the rotor is pointing at is for the #1 spark plug wire. Then, going clockwise, the next wire is #8, then 4, 3, 6, 5, 7, & 2.

Would replacing the distributor and rotor on a 97 Altima cause it not to start?

Assuming you mean distributor cap and rotor, yes, if you mixed up the firing order.

What direction does a hurricane spin?

Hurricane is the term used for a tropical cyclone in the Americas, or the northern hemisphere. All cyclones in the northern hemisphere spin in an anti-clockwise direction, whether they are hurricanes, or typhoons (the term for tropical cyclones in Asian waters).Cyclones in the southern hemisphere spin clockwise.This is due to the Coriolis Force, which is caused by the Earth's rotation. The Earth spins faster at the equator than at the poles. Low pressure is due to areas of rising air, which then start to spin counter-clockwise due to the Coriolis Force. High pressure is tied to sinking air, which the Coriolis Force turns the air clockwise in the northern hemisphere, where hurricanes occur.

Why won't my 1967 Mustang start after replacing distributor cap and rotor?

no spark to plugs

How do you rotate a figure 360 degrees clockwise on a graph?

360 degree rotation (clockwise or anticlockwise) leaves any figure in exactly the same position as it was at the start. So YOU DO NOTHING.

There's fuel and spark going to the engine of your 94 Plymouth sun dance but it still wont start what could cause this?

your distributor could be 180 degrees out. this causes the spark to hit when the cylinder is pushing the old gas out and pulling new gas in, take out the spark plug for the number 1 cylinder, put your finger in the hole and turn the engine over until you get pressure to push your finger out. the adjust the mark on the crank until it lines up with zero mark for timing (top dead center) Now-- make sure the distributor's rotor is lined up with the wire to the #1 cylinder on the cap. AND MAKE SURE the wires are going in the right direction with the rotor,>>>>>>if the timing was 1 2 3 4 clockwise and you have the wires going 1 2 3 4 counterclockwise, the engine is timed at 1 4 3 2 and will not start.

Why the rotor winding of a synchronous motor is usually connected to an external resistance during start up?

because at start the motor draws larger quantity of current and this may affected the rotor windings in order to limit current always resistance is connected.

How liquid rotor resistance operate?

Re: Liquid Rotor Starter A variant of the induction motor, is the slip ring, or wound rotor motor. The induction motor has a "squirrel cage" rotor which is in effect a short circuited winding in the rotor. The start and run characteristics are influenced by the resistance and inductance of the rotor circuit. One of the problems of the induction motor, is that the start current is very high (600 - 900%) and the start torque is relatively low (120 - 200%) compared to the start current drawn. The induction motor has a speed at which maximum torque is produced and this is very close to full speed. By altering the resistance in the rotor design, we can alter the speed at which maximum torque is produced. Below this speed, the current goes high and the torque goes down. Above this speed, the current drops with the torque. The wound rotor motor, has a winding on the rotor that is not short circuited, but is brought out to slip rings. This enables the effective rotor resistance to be altered. By varying the rotor resistance while the motor starts, we can cause the speed of maximum torque to shift from zero speed up to very close to full speed in a number of steps. The big advantage of this, is that the motor is able to provide a high start torque (around 200%) and a low start current (around 200%) from zero speed to full speed. This is very god for starting high inertia and difficult start loads on relatively weak supplies. The rotor resistors can be cast resistors, wound resistors, or liquid resistors. With standard resistors, the stages are switched in and out by contactors to alter the resistance. With liquid resistors, the resistance can be varied by varying the immersion of probes in the electrolyte. This can be achieved by raising and lowering the probes, or the liquid level.

My 11HP BriggsStratten lawnmower wont start Its getting spark and gas When turned over there is a fairly rapid backfiring ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Check the speed control and ensure throttle closes fully and adjust as necessary; also check for leaking carburetor mounting gaskets or loose bolts. Turn needle valve clockwise until it just contacts the seat and then turn counterclockwise 1-1/2 turns and start engine. Let it warm up and turn needle valve clockwise until engine slows (lean mixture), then turn counterclockwise past smooth operating level (rich mixture) then set needle valve at midpoint. If problem persists, remove carburetor and disassemble and clean with carburetor cleaner. Then re-do the adjustments described. Good luck.
