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!
if you have any questions about engines ask me - moparman48
What is spark plug's position? tell me.
The rotor inside the distributor should be pointing at the #1 spark plug.
4.3? Follow the spark plug wires from the spark plugs, they will lead you right to the distributor.

mabey bad plug wires or plugs....or rotor in the distributor...but im 16 what do i know
no comment i just need the answer where is the number one spark plug on the 307 distributor cap
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.
see if the coil is sparking to the distributor cap
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.
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.
If you have spark at all but one plug, the problem is with that plug, wire, cap or rotor.
