The firing order is 1,3,5,7 on the drivers side and 2,4,6,8 on the passanger side, number 1 on the distributor is at the five o'clock position as you are looking at the distributor from the front. Firing order is on the intake manifold just in front of the carb.

The 1991 Chevrolet Caprice Classic radio fuse will be the number 14 fuse. The number 14 fuse will be in the second column, fourth from the top.

The firing order on most GM V8 engines is 1-8-6-3-5-4-7-2. On the distributor cap, if the distributor shaft and timing chain have been properly installed, the number one terminal is closest to the carburetor or throttle body. CORRECTION!!! 18436572 is the correct firing order

Firing Order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 check the top of the intake manifold (the thing the carb is bolted to) usually in front of the carb. The firing order should be stamped into the intake. You need to know where number 1 cylinder is on the distributer. count clockwise.
