How do you tell the firing order on motor and distributor cap for a chevy 350?

\n1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2,\n Answer \n. \n. \nThe firing order is usually stamped on the intake manifold. To get the right order on the distributor cap, remove the distributor cap. Remove the #1 spark plug. Place your finger in the spark plug hole. Manually turn the motor clockwise. Compressed air will "blow by" your finger when the #1 cylinder is reaching the top of the compression stroke. Verify "top dead center" on the timing mark/harmonic balancer. Look at the distributor. The rotor will be pointing to where the #1 spark plug wire will go. Place the cap back on the distributor, put the #1 wire where the rotor pointed, follow the firing order stamped on the intake CLOCKWISE around the distributor cap.\n. \n. \nOk, I had the same problem this weekend. Somehow I mixed up the wires, even thought I pulled one at a time. I have a 94 GMC suburban. From the front of the truck, #1 is at 5 oclock on the distrubutor, the first pole clockwise from the mounting screw that points towards the front right headlight. There are two mounting screws for the dist cap. One towards the cab firewall and one closest to the coil. That screw, one pole clockwise, is number one cylinder on the rotation. Rotor turns clockwise. I hope this helps someone more than trying to stick your finger over the plug hole and be Stretch ArmStrong by turning the ignition at the same time.

Do you have a diagram of the firing order from distributor cap to spark plug on a 1991 Chevy blazer S-10 4.3 liter engine?

Answer . Yes I have a diagragm of the firing order for a 91 s10 blazer and you should get one too, mine is in my Haynes Repair manual # 24070. Since you don't have one I will attempt to describe how you can draw one.. 1. draw a circle using a quarter as a guide to represent your disrtibutor, draw six small circles in that circle or outside that circle to represent the spark plug wires, you should have two at the bottom of the circle, one to each side and two at the top of the circle. fill in the lower right circle to represent number one spark plug wire. draw an arrow over the top of the distributor aiming right indicating a clockwise rotation of the distributor.. 2. Below the distributor circle draw a rectangle to represent the engine, draw 6 circles, three on each side to represent the cylinders, number them starting at the lower right with number one, then the lower left as number two. you should end up with the numbers 1, 3, and 5 on the right side of the rectangle from front to back and 2, 4, and 6 on the left side.. 3. mark the firing order below the engine block you have drawn, it is 1-6-5-4-3-2 for 1988 and later 4.3 V6 engines.. 4. Now all you have to do is start with number one on the distributor and put a spark plug wire in that hole then put the other end on the number one cylinder's spark plug. The next hole in the distributor in the clockwise direction is for the number 6 cylinder following the firing order, then 5, 4, 3, and 2.

If the firing order is 18436572 then on the distributor cap does it mean the 8 plug wire goes next to the 1 and so on clockwise?

Take off the distributor cap, turn the engine crankshaft pulley clockwise and see which way the rotor turns. Then remove the plug from cylinder 1 and replace by a couple of turns. Turn the engine pulley to line up the timing marks and if air hisses from cylinder 1 the distributor rotor is pointing to where cylinder 1 wire goes (If no hiss, rotate crankshaft pulley a full turn and hiss should be heard). Then it is as you say but in the direction the rotor turned

Where would firing order start on the distributor cap for a Chevy Celebrity?

The distributor rotates in the clockwise direction. The number 1 cylinder wire goes on the first wire tower above the flat spot as the rotor turns.

facing the car from the front... the back of the engine is plugs 1,3,5 from left to right. So the plug closest to the alternator is 1. The plugs closest to the front of the car are 2,4,6 left to right. So the closest to the transmission is 6. The cap has 1,3,5 closest to rear of car and 2,4,6 closest to front of car.
