Check the compression on the cylinder that's not firing. If you have little or no compression on that cylinder, you need a valve job and depending on the total miles on the engine, you may need a complete engine reuild or replacement. If compression is up, replace sparkplugs, wires and distributor cap and rotor if it has a distributor. GM has been going without a distributor on many engines but probably not an 82 S10.

1983 302 ford motor ignition timing?

Depends on if it is the HO engine or not. In 1982 and newer Ford changed the firing order for the 302 HO but left the base 302 alone. So if you are referring to a 302 in a Mustang/Capri it would use the HO firing order. If not, it would use the older firing order. Cylinder numbering starts with cylinder 1 at the passenger front cylinder and works back to 4 at the back of the passenger side of the engine. Cylinder 5 is at the front of the drivers side of the engine and again it works back to 8 being the rearmost cylinder on the drivers side. HO Firing Order: 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 Old Firing Order: 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8
