1993 Ford Escort 1.9 Liter Engine Spark Plug to Distributor Cap Wire Order: Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the distributor cap is to the right of the engine (or on the driver's side of the car looking from the front of the car. The spark plug wires come from each spark plug and terminate on the distributor cap. They plug in to the distributor cap. Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the spark plugs (left to right) are identified as spark plug "A", spark plug "B", spark plug "C" and spark plug "D". "A" wire comes from the "A" spark plug to the 4th (right most) hole on the distributor cap; "B" wire comes from the "B" spark plug to the 3rd (2nd right most) hole on the distributor cap; "C" wire comes from the "C" spark plug to the 2nd (left most) hole on the distributor cap and the "D" wire comes from the "D" spark plug to the left most hole on the distributor cap.
The computer uses the pick up plate in the distributor to know when to activated the coil to cause a spark to go down the coil wire to the distributor cap and through the cap and rotor to an individual plug wire to the spark plug.The computer uses the pick up plate in the distributor to know when to activated the coil to cause a spark to go down the coil wire to the distributor cap and through the cap and rotor to an individual plug wire to the spark plug.
The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces to the FRONT
It is in the very back of the engine. Just follow a plug wire from the spark plug to the distributor cap. It is hard to see. All the plug wires start at the distributor and then hook to each plug.
there is no cap it has a coil for each plug wire on the motor remove one wire at a time and replace it
It uses a coil pack instead of a distributor cap. Follow a spark plug wire to coil pack.
get a book Run your spark plug wire from the #1 plug to the #1 lug on the distributor cap. Then follow the rest of the firing order going clockwise around the cap.
If it is a early model HEI. Then the inginition coil is bolted into the top of the distributor cap.
The wire sequence on the distributor cap just goes 1 thru 6, clockwise, starting from the number one position (which should be marked either on the cap or distributor).
to the left of cap wiring plug ins one space.
follow first wire on drivers side at front of engine to cap
that is stamp on the intake right rear. 65;
Remove the old distributor cap from on top of the distributor but do not disconnect any plug wires. Push it aside. Remove the old rotor and install a new one. Then install the new distributor cap. Remove the plug wires from the old cap one at a time and plug then into the new cap in the same locations as they came off the old cap. Go around in a circle until all the old plug wires are plugged into the new cap. Discard the old cap. Now remove one plug wire from the new distributor cap and the corresponding spark plug, and choose a new wire the same length. Install that wire on the spark plug and connect the other end to the distributor. Repeat the process on all plug wires until all the old ones have been removed and replaced. Do not get them mixed up. By doing them one at a time you will have no problem.

whats the motor.....but regardless if you follow the plug wires they lead to the distributor cap. v6 has 6 plug wires.....one to each plug and all of the on the distributor cap.......v8 has 8 plugs with their wires leading from each plug to the distributor cap
1, 2, 4, 3
Front left of the cap
On Dodges, the the first(front) drivers side cylinder(spark plug) is the number one. So if you follow that wire to the distributor cap you will have the number one position. this should work for big and small block motors
If you still can, just put the new cap and rotor on and install the plug wires the same way they are on your old cap.
Bad distributor cap, plug wire, or spark plug.
On the 383 Dodge , # 1 on the distributor cap faces to the front and slightly towards the passenger side
Mark your number one spark plug wire where it attaches to the cap ( i use white fingernail polish for marking parts ). Take your new distributor cap out of the box and mark it where you would put the number 1 spark plug cable on it. Then unplug the #1 spark plug wire and the coil wire ( the one in the middle ). Use your finger or carefully use a screwdriver to unpop the two metal clamps that hold the cap down. Since you are replacing your cap you should also replace the rotor, if you have a new one do that now. Plug the #1 spark plug wire and coil wire into the new cap and put it on the distriburtor. Pull off the other spark plug wires and plug them into the new cap , one at a time, in the same place where they were on the original cap.
