i want to see the diagram wiring from the engine block to the distributor cap please.
Yes it is common the same as the distributor rotor burning through.
When messing with the wires of an engine it is important to have a diagram. The diagram can be found a the maintenance, or repair manuals bought at car part stores.
where are the coil wires located, and where do they hook up
Bring the #1 plug up, find the firing order to the distributor then go clockwise. What type of engine is it? if its a 4 cylinder engine, cyl #1 is at the front of the engine, then #2, #3 and at the rear is #4. the distributor cap has one terminal that has a "1" on it and an arrow showing the direction that the rotor turns. obviously the #1 wire goes on the #1 terminal. the next terminal (following the arrow) is 3 then 4 then 2.
The wiring diagram for the engine of a car shows the reader exactly how it is wired. This is what everything does, and how they connect and work together.
It's wherever the last person who put the distributor in put it at. IF you want to know for sure then set your #1 cylinder at TDC and see where the rotor points to. It's either at that terminal or the one opposite of it. Usually the factory points the #1 to the front somewhere. your firing order is 165432 i think also. and the distributor turns CW i believe also too.
Firing order for you're Rocket engine is 18436572 distributor rotation is counterclockwise. Cylinder one on the distributor cap points to cylinder one.

I have the same problem with a '82 Poweram 150 - It was suggested to me that it could be the engine is improperly connected to the negative terminal on the battery. Take jumper cables and ground one side to the negative terminal, the other clipped to the engine near the distributor. Might do the trick.

On number one terminal, put engine at tdc on 1. If engine/rotor hasn't moved, leave rotor alone.
The firing order is ( 1 - 5 - 3 - 6 - 2 - 4 ) The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces AWAY from the engine The engine cylinders are numbered 1 to 6 , from front to rear of engine
Yes it is. Standing in the front of the engine it would be on the left side of the distributor under the cap.
Looking from the balancer to the rear of the engine it is at the front of the dist on the right.
FACING THE DISTRIBUTOR WITH THE LITTLE DOOR TOWARD YOU, NUMBER ONE IS THE FIRST TERMINAL TO THE LEFT. THE FIRING ORDER IS 18436572 GOING IN A CLOCKWISE DIRECTION
It is on the rear of the engine, next to the distributor.It is on the rear of the engine, next to the distributor.
I have a 73 460 engine what exactly do you want to know??? I might be able to help
It is not possible to show pictures or diagrams on wikianswers

The wiring diagram from the distributor cap to the spark plugs for firing order for a 93 Chevy Caprice 5.7 liter engine is found at Wiring4cars. You can search the site by vehicle year, make, and model.
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
Tachometers are installed on the positive side of the coil. If you have an older HEI distributor, you should find a male terminal where the electrical connections go designed for a tach installation.
Is the vacume for the distributor TIMED vaume or full vaume at idle???
