NOTE !!!!!! I Made A Mistake The Number One Cylinder Is On The Right Followed By 3,5,7.Left Side All Even Numbered Cylinders Beginning With 2 Followed By 4,6,8. SorryAnswerOk Here Goes. The Firing Order Is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The Rotation Is Clockwise Of The Rotor. Next Standing In Front Of Vehicle The Cylinder Numbers Are ( On The Left Side 1-3-5-7 The Odd Numbered Ones. On The Right Side They Number 2-4-6-8 ) Facing The Distributor Cap From Front Of Engine Number One Cable Will Be Around 7 0r 8 Oclock. Kinda` Like A Clock Face ++++ see it in this format=== Install Number One Here Then Next Going Clockwise Install 8,4,3,6,5,7 And Last 2. This Should Be About Right. Good Luckanswer depending on whether it has a Ford or Chrysler motor
The main components to check are the battery, coil, the distributor, its cap and rotor and the associated wires from the coil to the distributor and from the distributor to the spark plugs. Distributor is on the front right side.
You can begin by removing the spark plug wires from your 1985 Chevrolet S 10 Blazer spark plugs. Use a 5/8 deep well socket to turn the spark plugs out. Turning the socket to the left will loosen the spark plugs. Reverse the process to install the new spark plugs.
It is likely that it is not firing on all spark plugs, you should try checking spark plugs and timing, there could also be a problem with the distributor cap or spark plug leads themselves may be worn. Try chacking backwards from the spark plugs.
I'm hoping what you mean by "fire" is a spark to the distributor? Cause if your car is actually producing fireballs under your hood...well...that's a whole nother issue. Spark plugs...change them...then wires. Always remember when looking for a problem regarding ignition/sparks...check the spark plugs first, then the wires, cap, distributor, ignitor box, and finally ignition wiring which is the last thing you would want to be wrong hence the last thing you check ;) All in that order. If you have "coil packs" there will not be a set of wires/distributor/or distributor cap. If this is a " all of a sudden" problem it is probably your duraspark ignition module.
Well, I'd check the distributor cap and rotor first. If those seem to be in fair order, then you probably have a slipped/broken timing chain/belt. If the timing gear doesn't turn, no spark will be sent to the plugs. Also check all wires to and from the coil, especially the coil wire itself. Bad coil wires are not uncommon (no connection between coil and distributor = no spark). The coil itself may be faulty or power wires to it may be broken/loose/shorted.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, clockwise. Sorry but it is counter clockwise
check all plugs plug leads distributor points and distributor cap for cracks and wear
There are a number of possible reasons your 85 Chevy Celebrity has no spark. A few possibilities include: Defective Distributor Cap Defective Rotor Failed ignition module Failed coil Failed reluctor Worn out distributor Bad spark plug wires Defective engine control module (computer) Wiring problems including broken wires or connectors unpluged also dirty or fouled connections
It is at the rear of the engine and has the plug wires coming out of it.

If sit has a carb. perhaps choke is not releasing fast enough - causing it to run too rich until warm up
The specs on NGK brand spark plugs for 1985-1993 BMW 535i lists the gap at 0.028. Hope that helps.
I had that problem, now is resolved as per below; *Dirty spark plugs. *Old rusted spark plugs cables. *Old timing Distributor cap and condenser. ** Carburetor not sincronized and check your catalistic. ***If original Timing ,,it needs to be replace . Once you check all that, make your decision ,,it may cost you , but after that,, you have a great solid car.
are the plug wires in the correct sequence for firing order? Are the coil wires all connected? Did you remove the distributor and possibly put it out of time?
get a set of new plug wires for it that are pre-cut for the car and then replace 1 wire at a time.
The gap is .7 mm or .032"
The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces AWAY from the engine Go CLOCKWISE on the distributor cap ( 1 - 5 - 3 - 6 - 2 - 4 ) The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered 1 to 6 , from front to rear
Remove the chrome cover, pull out the plug cable, use the spark plug socket with a ratchet.
whats the gap size for a 1985 e150 econoline conversion van (carbed) ======================================================= According to one of Fords websites : For a 1985 Ford E-150 : All engines have the spark plugs gapped at ( .044 inch ) * the HIGH ALTITUDE version of the 4.9 liter six , the spark plugs are gapped at .054
