If you are standing in front of your vehicle looking at the motor the #1 plug is on the left side closest to you (left front). #2 is the 2nd one back on the left side, 3 and 4 being the last one all the way in the back on the left side. The #5 is right front 6, 7, and #8 is the right rear. Distributor rotation is counter clockwise.

That is the correct spelling of the noun "distributor" (middleman, or car engine part).

To set the timing on a Toyota 22R engine find the distributor. The engine will have marks at which the distributor can be set. The OEM setting for a 22R engine is 5 degrees.

If I remember correctly the 351 Windsor has a vertically mounted thermostat that is mounted in the end of the intake manifold The 351 Cleveland thermostat is mounted horizontally in the engine block by the distributor

- Do not adjust timing on anything from the distributor cap. You can adjust timing by moving the distributor. - You need a timing light and timing needs to be at top dead center to start. Then make a visible mark on base of distributor and engine block so you know where distributor was when you started. That's in case you need to start over. - Loosen the bolt that holds the distributor. Only loosen it enough to move the distributor. - Now hook up the timing light, being careful not to get hit by fan, or caught in the fan belt. Aim the timing light at timing marks on the front of motor. You may need a second person to move the distributor for you. This gets moved very slowly, a tiny amount at a time. - Using white out, color the correct timing line on front of engine so it will light up when using timing light. - Start the engine while watching the light on the timing marks. You can tell the other person how much and which way to move the distributor. Move only until the marks are lined up . - When it is correct it will look like the light is on all the time. When the distributor is in the correct position tighten the bolt that holds the distributor. - After doing this, if the engine is backfiring, and you have previously had the distributor removed from the engine, it is most likely because the distributor is installed 180 degrees wrong. - To correct the backfiring remove the distributor bolt, rotate the engine top dead center on the number one piston. If the rotor at this time is not pointing at the number one plug lead then carefully lift the distributor from the engine enough to rotate the rotor 180 degrees. Then re-insert the distributor and try timing from start again.

to remove distributer from old engine, remove distributer cap, noting the position of rotar button. remove one bolt that secures distributor to block. lift ditributer out paying attention to the movement of rotor button. u need to note this when re installing so as distributor goes back in, close to same timing setting. replace bolt but do not tighten fully you will then need to recheck timing. if timing is correct engine will start. if backfiing occurs, your distributor is in , 180 degrees wrong. remove distributer, turn rotor 180 degrees then reinstall. check timing again
