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!

The rotor inside the distributor should be pointing at the #1 spark plug.

The firing order for a 1994 Chevy 1500 Silverado 305 from the distributor cap to the spark plug is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. To locate the number one plug, look for where the wires plug into the small square on the driver's side, two pegs clockwise from that square is the #1 spark plug.

The number #1 plug is the forward-most plug on the left (driver's) side. Trace that wire back to the cap and you've got your answer.

It is in the very back of the engine. Just follow a plug wire from the spark plug to the distributor cap. It is hard to see. All the plug wires start at the distributor and then hook to each plug.

The number 1 cylinder is located at the front left of the engine block while FACING the engine. Follow the spark plug wire to the distributor a POW there it is.

Get a shop manual. There is no distributor. These have coil packs.

no distributor or spark plug wires its a coil pack on the top of the engine.

This motor has no distributor. It has a coil pack for each spark plug. There is no condenser.

1993 Ford Escort 1.9 Liter Engine Spark Plug to Distributor Cap Wire Order: Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the distributor cap is to the right of the engine (or on the driver's side of the car looking from the front of the car. The spark plug wires come from each spark plug and terminate on the distributor cap. They plug in to the distributor cap. Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the spark plugs (left to right) are identified as spark plug "A", spark plug "B", spark plug "C" and spark plug "D". "A" wire comes from the "A" spark plug to the 4th (right most) hole on the distributor cap; "B" wire comes from the "B" spark plug to the 3rd (2nd right most) hole on the distributor cap; "C" wire comes from the "C" spark plug to the 2nd (left most) hole on the distributor cap and the "D" wire comes from the "D" spark plug to the left most hole on the distributor cap.

Spark Plug Wires? Remove them 1 at a time from the spark plug to the distributor or the ION pack, remove and replace the spark plug, add the new spark plug wire from the newly added spark plug to the distributor or ION pack.

User Avatar

Yes, if the spark plug wires can be connected to the distributor and works.

User Avatar

That's not really what's going on. The coil makes the spark, the distributor distributes the spark to the correct plug. If the distributor is not in the correct position, the spark does not go to the correct plug, or goes to the correct plug at the wrong time.

It does not have a distributor or plug wires, there is a coil over each spark plug.It is called a coil on plug system.It does not have a distributor or plug wires, there is a coil over each spark plug.It is called a coil on plug system.

How does the wires from the spark plug go to the rotor, which order?

User Avatar

get the compression stroke up on the number 1 spark plug and look at the rotor inside the distributor cap to see if it points to the number 1 wire on the cap

User Avatar

it should be right behind T.B.I unit....just follow your spark plug wires from block to..distributor and there it is....
