  1. 1 depends on where you position the distributor and rotor when you install it into the engine. when the engine is at TDC (0 degrees timing), then the rotor will be pointing to #1. the firing order of a typical Chevy dist. is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2, in a clockwise direction. and the engines are numbered with the even nunmbers on the drivers side (2-8) and odd cylinders on the pass. side (1-7). it can vary between many poles on the dist. just remove the cap when its at TDC. to find #1.

NEW ANSWER: Your right on everything but the even and odd numbers.

The driverside head, front to back is 1-3-5-7

The other head front to back is 2-4-6-8

ANOTHER NEW ANSWER.You are both right,as these cars were made in left&right hand drive.There are many opinions as to what side,but,my friends it is simple.If you stand at the front,1,3,5,7 will be on the right side & 2,4,6,8 will be on the left.Good answer no. 1.

where ever you want it to be just make sure you put the motor at top dead center on cylinder number one and stab the distributer where the rotor points at on the cap is number one and just go clock wise order and use the Chevy firing order

It's not marked because #1 can be just about anywhere. When the engine comes from the factory, it's always the same, but if the distributor has been removed, #1 will be whereever the rotor is pointing when #1 piston is at TDC at the top of the compression cycle.

its 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 on the distributer number one plug wire usually points to # 1 cylinder front driver side of engineand the distributer turns clockwise Or:

if its not an electric dist. than theres a metal "door" on the side of your dist. the point above it is the first point.

It is long as you have the right one.....on my 350 the ignition coil was located inside the distributer cap, easy enough, you just take off the 2 bolts and unplug

get the first piston on the engine TDC (top dead center) take the cap off the distributer and adjust it until the rotar is pointing at #1 cylinder then it will be enough in time to start then use a timiing light from there

it does not mean that. it means that the timing is off so it has to be timed by a timing gun pointed at the distributer and adjusted

should be in a straight line from center of the distributer cap to the #1 cylinder, or pointing at the #1 cylinder

The 83 Chevy C10 comes with a 305 but not a 350. The 350 is an option on the 3/4 ton but not the 1/2 ton.

It is not adjustable, its controlled by the computor.

The compression ratio of a 350 Chevy engine usually ranges from 8.0 and 9.0 to 1. This provides a good balance of fuel economy and power.

Compression ratio on a 1974 Chevy 350 in a Nova was 8.5:1.

start engine ,plug off vacuum line to advance on distributer ,set at 6-8 degrees btc with a timing light hooked on #1 cylinder,tighten dist. , hook vac. hose back up.done

what year is my 350 chevy engine K1201KRH

The Firing order for a Chevy 350 is 18436572.

NO. And it won't work in the place of the 97 350 vortec.

18436572 The #1 cylinder piston must be up on the compression stroke when the rotor button is pointing to #1 plug wire on the distributer cap. The firing order is counter clockwise around the cap.
