Left and right are determined by sitting in the car, facing forward. On a Chevy 350, number 1 is on the left or driver's side (in the USA) furthest forward cylinder. And you don't put the plug wire anywhere on the cap. You must bring number 1 cylinder up to top dead center on the compression stroke then lift the distributor cap and see which tower the rotor is pointing to....that will be number 1 tower.

look at your cylinders the left side is 2,4,6,8 and the right side is 1, 3, 5, 7 and the whole firing order is 1 8 4 3 6 5 7 2 so you put one spark plug wire on lead it to the number 1 cylinder then put the other end anywhere on the cap then get another wire put it on the 8 cylinder put it right beside your first wire but clockwise then you repeat the steps until your done then fire it up!
