How do i know where to put the firing order on the distributor cap?

After bringing your engine to top dead center, line the distributor up so the rotor faces the number one cylinder. Rotate the dist. so the closest terminal lines up with the rotor. This will be your number one in your firing order. Mark that terminal #1. Tighten the dist. in place. Put your wire from the cap to #1 cyl. Now follow the firing order for the rest of the wires. The dist. rotates clockwise so put the wire on the next terminal on the left and route it to the next number cyl. in the firing order. Do this till all are connected. Here is a link to help.

What is the firing order and plug wire order on a 1989 trans am 350 engine?

the firing order 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. okay this is the way i set mines. on the dist. the number 1 plug terminal (should be facing the cyl. bore number one) then from there go clockwise in the firing order. another way is to look at the dist rotor when the number 1 cyl. is in top dead center(be careful there are two top dead centers for ever dist. rotation). when you have the right top dead center then go by the dist. rotor to which every dist. plug terminal the dist. rotor points to, that would be number one plug wire then go clockwise in firing order.

What side is 1 cylinder on a 3.3L V6 Nissan?

Right front when looking down from top, with pulley in front. If it has a distributor, which most of these 3.3's do, it will also show #1 cyl on the cap, beside the terminal that the spark plug wires plug into. Easy to trace out where it goes: Right Front cyl. However; If a cheap dist cap was installed, it might not have the wires numbered. It's interesting that most Technical Specs books these days, like AUTODATA books, which cost a lot, DO NOT have this information in them.

How do you replace distributor seal on 1991 Previa?

Previa Dist.CapSorry, but you don't. The Toyota Previa has an internalized distributor cap/rotar located under the console on the driver's side. Unless you are a certified Toyota Mechanic, it's basically impossible to change/clean/whatever. Actually... the dist. and cap is under the pass. seat and is mounted on the end of the cyl. head. It is replaceable.XXXXXXXWrong Answer!The Previa's Dist. is under the engine, facing to the rear of the van. The Cap & rotor are replaceable.The dist. is easy to remove if you have enough room to get under the van.Also, the dist. SHAFT oil seal goes out regular on all Previa's. Ck. this1st. as it is the most prevalent oil leak for Previa's.The 2nd most prevalent oil leak for these van's is from the valve cover not reinstalled correctly after removed for any reason. Make sure to use Sealant in the correct spots.See any Haynes repair manuel. (I detest Chiltons repair-no-help manuel.gettocar

This firing order is also molded into the stock intake manifold towards the front (between the water outlet and the carburator). 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 and if you dont know what cyl is what it goes like this 1,3,5,&7 are on the right side of the eng when facing the rear of vehicle & 246&8 are on the left and if you need to know which prong on dist cap to start on you get #1 cyl @ top dead ctr and then remove dist cap andwhich ever prong the rotor button is on is the starting point and then go clockwise in order.
