The rotor inside the distributor should be pointing at the #1 spark plug.
Standing in front of the vehicle with the hood open, #1 on the distributor cap would be at the 6 O'Clock postion, from there clockwise would be 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2.
The number one plug is the one on the drivers side front of the engine. Therefore the plug wire connected to that plug is number 1 and where it connects to the distributor is the number 1 position on the distributor. If you have removed all the plug wires then you will have to remove the spark plugs, turn the engine over until the number 1 cylinder is at top dead center (TDC) on the compressions stroke. Once it is at TDC then the rotor inside the distributor will be pointing to the number 1 position.
The number #1 plug is the forward-most plug on the left (driver's) side. Trace that wire back to the cap and you've got your answer.
On the 305 engine the number one plug position is the first one on the right side while you are facing the engine.
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.
the one inline with the coil in front to the left
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
The number 1 cylinder is located at the front left of the engine block while FACING the engine. Follow the spark plug wire to the distributor a POW there it is.
Spark Plug (ACDelco R45TS) [Gap @ .035” for points distributor, .045” for HEI distributor]
get the compression stroke up on the number 1 spark plug and look at the rotor inside the distributor cap to see if it points to the number 1 wire on the cap
The firing order for a 1994 Chevy 1500 Silverado 305 from the distributor cap to the spark plug is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. To locate the number one plug, look for where the wires plug into the small square on the driver's side, two pegs clockwise from that square is the #1 spark plug.
If you will remove the #1 plug, (driver's side front of engine), then turn that cylinder to top dead center, (TDC), on the compression stroke, you can then remove the distributor cap and look at the rotor. The rotor will now be pointing to the #1 plug position. GET THE NUMBER ONE CYLINDER TOP DEAD AND THE ROTOR IN THE DISTRIBUTOR SHOULD BE PIONTING AT IT
check all plugs plug leads distributor points and distributor cap for cracks and wear
mabey bad plug wires or plugs....or rotor in the distributor...but im 16 what do i know
take number 1 spark plug out and bring that piston to top dead center. Then take distributor cap off. Locate which tower the rotor is pointing to on the cap. That will be the number 1 plug wire. Then just follow the firing order. The rotor should turn clockwise.
Assuming this is a 4.3L engine, standing in front with the hood open, looking at the distributor, #1 would be at the 5:30 position.
Get a shop manual. There is no distributor. These have coil packs.
4.3? Follow the spark plug wires from the spark plugs, they will lead you right to the distributor.

Number 1 plug position will be listed on the cap. Now if you know the firing order, and you know the direction the distributor is turning, you then will know plug positions as connected to the distributor cap.
It is at the rear of the engine and has the plug wires coming out of it.
