If you are needing to know which wires go where, just call your local auto parts store (autozone, o'reilly, napa,etc...) and ask them for the firing order for your vehicle. Make sure to ask them where the number one cylinder is.

What kind of distributor do you need for a 1994 Chevy blazer?

On the '94, you probably have a 'Z' engine and you'll need a distributor with top-mounted plug wires. If I am wrong and you have a 'W' motor, you'll need a distributor with side mounted wires (serious pain). They are both top mount plug wires. It was not until later they had the side mount wires. Vin "Z" is a TBI (throttle body) Vin "W" is Vortec. TBI has breather mounted on intake Vortec says Vortec on Intake

Distributor panel?? If you mean distributor cap, you first move the air intake going to the throttle body. Mark all spark plugs wires with the correct plug and unplug each one at the spark plug. Next you will find 2 screws holding the distributor cap. Remove both screws and and lift off the cap and wires while the wires are still connected to the cap. Take the spark plug wires off and place them onto the new cap in the same position you removed them. Put new cap on and tighten the screws and replace the wires to the correct spark plug. You should replace the wires and rotor button when you do this also.
