Answer

The Old 403 in the 1979 Trans_Am has the same Firing Order as other GM V-8s 1-8-3-4-6-5-7-2. Take the distrbutor cap off and have some one crank the engine so you will know which way to place the wires CLOCKWISE or COUNTER CLOCKWISE. Then turn the engine until the timing mark is showing. then put the #1 plug wire on the corosponding position on the cap and place the rest of the plug wires on. If it fires up ypu are in business if not you need to move the plugs wires 180 degrees (or half around the cap and try again)


Probably just a typo up there...but the firing order is actually 18436572.

You can find a power window wiring diagram for your 1977 through 1979 Pontiac Trans Am in Pontiac service manuals. The service manuals can be found at most local libraries.

The firing order should be 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

It was a Pontiac Trans Am, probably 1979, since that was the year the movie was made.

Which 350?? Chevy or Pontiac? A Pontiac engine will drop right in. A Chevy takes a lot more work.

using number one plug as front drivers side my 6 cylinder firing order is 1, 6, 3, 5, 2, 4. My engine is out of a 69 Pontiac Sunbird but I believe it is the same as the Buick engine.

To get a 400 Pontiac Motor in 1979, you had to also get the 4 speed. Pontiac last manufactured 400 motors in 1978 but saved some from 1978 for use in the 1979 model. Those motors were used in the 1979 4 speed cars only. 1979 Automatics had the Oldsmobile 403. You could also get a turbo version too. All of which could come with auto trans. I worked on many of these at the Pontiac dealer.

from factory they offered a Pontiac 400 w/ 4-speed or the Olds 403. 301 was also available.
