Where is 1 on a 350 chevy distributer?

  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.
