It is located on the distributor under the cap and rotor.
If you turn the engine to TDC on the compression stroke, the distributor rotor will point at the terminal for #1. Most distributors have a mark (usually a 1) on them under the cap to indicate the #1 position for the rotor to point at. The cap tower directly above the rotor point at this position is for the #1 spark plug.
That would be the pick up plate in the distributor under the rotor and cap.
Standard is that it is pointing at the number one position on the distributor cap.
On number one terminal, put engine at tdc on 1. If engine/rotor hasn't moved, leave rotor alone.
the rotor should be pointing towards the number one plug position on the distributor cap, and the engine should be on compression stroke. If its not the motor will be 180 degrees out
Number 1 cylinder, which would be the first cylinder on the drivers side of the engine. You want the rotor pointing towards the 5 O'Clock position looking at the distributor from the front.
The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces AWAY from the engine The spark plug firing order is 1 - 5 - 3 - 6 - 2 - 4 The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE
That would be the pick up plate in the distributor, under the cap and rotor.
once the number 1 piston is on tdc which ever point the rotor is facing becomes the number one position. if you conect the wires from there and follow your firing order you should have no problems.(i have done it)
According to the ( about . com website ) - # 1 position on the distributor cap faces towards the drivers side The firing order is ( 1 - 8 - 4 - 3 - 6 - 5 - 7 - 2 ) The distributor rotor turns COUNTERCLOCKWISE On the 4.1 liter V8 engine in your front wheel drive Cadillac
The marked # 1 position on the distributor cap faces to the FRONT and center of the engine
mark position of old distributor on motor and on old dist, also mark position of rotor. Remove old distributor, mark the position on new distributor, move rotor to the marked position, drop in
The 3.8 liter V6 engine has a distributor cap and rotor in a 1997 Ford Thunderbird
Broken rotor button.
For a Mercury / Ford 3.0 liter V6 engine : ( the distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE )
The cam position sensor is inside the distributor, under the rotor. The crank position sensor is through the top of the bell housing, behind the passenger side cylinder head, under the transmission tube.The cam position sensor is inside the distributor, under the rotor. The crank position sensor is through the top of the bell housing, behind the passenger side cylinder head, under the transmission tube.
rotor should point to cylinder #1
It is the sensor in the distributor under the cap and rotor.It is the sensor in the distributor under the cap and rotor.
The # 1 position faces to the REAR and slightly towards the drivers side on the Ford 400 cubic inch V8 engine distributor cap
Bad coil, Bad damaged or unplugged crank/cam position sensor, bad rotor, distributer cap, faulty distributer, plugs wires
When you take these off you mark the outer shaft to the manifold first, then the position of the rotor before removal. while removing the rotor will rotate. Mark the new position with the outer shaft still alinged with its original mark. When you reinstall, the rotor should rotate back to the original mark on the rotor. shaft marks should also line up. Not sure if your model is controled by ecm. Can't be timed by gun if it is. Computer has to be reset dash will look like Christmas tree if you do this wrong definitly will not run.
