On a 1995 Chevy truck v8 where is 1 on the dist cap?
Number 1 on the distributor cap should be located right behind the coil. The two front terminals are #1 on the front right and #8 on the front left.
that's a statement not a question. do you mean how to i check for spark on a Chevy truck? check the control module unplug it from the dis cap it has 2 plugs on it leave the power plugged in if it fires up its the module. take the cap off clean the contacts if its been sitting awhile they get corroded.
How take distributor out of Chevy truck do you just take cap off and pick stright up after marking rotor?
Pretty much except I would bring number one cylinder up on the compression stroke then line up TDC on the timing marks, remove cap, note position of distributor and rotor, then pull the distributor up and out, (note that rotor rotates a bit as the dist is removed). This way you have a reference point if something moves.
ignition switch?? ignition module is on distributor, and is under the dist cap, remove the dist cap and rotor bug, it pulls off, then if it was not running you can remove the little black box, its a module, have it checked at autozone for free, take coil off top of dist cap, is as easy as removing the screws, and replacing unit. reassemble it.
