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

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.

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. 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.)
