Answerdont remove the old wires.one by one replace the wires after you have removed the old cap and installed the new one.looking at the cap and matching up the wires in the proper position take the old wires and insert them into the same position as the old cap.

use the 5.0ho or 351w firing order if you already made the mistake

Look for the hole into which the distributor is to go, assuming that it is a bare block you're talking about: the distributor goes up front. jb

Maybe the coil pack don't know what hole you are talking about

You will have no spark from the distributor.You will have no spark from the distributor.

I don't know if this is true forsure, but I found a wiki answer that said it was behind the distributor cap. Because I bought an 89 accord that the cord is under the hood and it is not plugged into the block. I am having trouble finding it though because I have a feeling I may have to remove the distributor cap to see where the plug goes and install it. I also called the Honda dealer in my area and they said that it is either behind the distributor cap or by the oil filter.

Number 1 plug position will be listed on the cap. Now if you know the firing order, and you know the direction the distributor is turning, you then will know plug positions as connected to the distributor cap.

Look at the spark plugs-- if one has no wire at the top, that is the problem- there should be a wire from each spark plug to the distributor cap.

Standing in front of the vehicle with the hood open #1 would be at the 5:00 position on the distributor cap. From there clockwise it goes 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.

Unplug the wires going into the distributor cap, be sure you know which wire goes to which terminal or your car will not start if they are wrong. Remove the 3 bolts that hold the plastic cap to the metal distributor. Put the new cap back on, replace the bolts, and plug the wires into the appropriate terminal.

her is a link to a diagram, http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=17192, that should be all you need to know about that.

You need to know the firing order and distributor direction. Go to your local parts store and ask them to look it up for you. If they won't help you go to a different store. Good luck.

I don't know what your specific problem is, but there is no distributor cap.

Need to know what year and engine size. Some engines do not use a distributor.


Need to know what engine you have.

Abraham Lincoln is know for being presedent.

It could be that the distributor was not the problem. Need to know what the code is and what engine you have.

yes Kennedy's secretary name is lincoln you know Abraham lincoln

I know that the engine coolant temperature sensor and some of the useless emissions stuff goes to the computer but that is the only thing I can think of.

Yes. Lincoln was his commander-in-chief.

Could be the distributor cap and/or rotor. $20 bucks at your local parts store. Easy 2 minute change-out. To test. run a blow dryer on the distributor cap when its wet out. don't melt anything though :) if it starts after you dry it off with the blow dryer than you know its a faulty distributor cap. good luck.

If the distributor has failed, the vehicle will probably not run. If the distributor is failing, the only way to really test this is by replacement, since it requires special equipment to test a distributor.

i dont know who he killed but i know that he killed Abraham lincoln

You have to know or find out the firing order of your engine. The distributor rotor goes around in circler and fires at each wire in order at the cap. BUT the spark plugs don't ignite each cylinder in numerical order since that would cause a lot of unbalanced strain on the engine.
