Need to change front rotors

How do the berrings go in to the actual rotor? are the smaller ones that are in the front casing installed with the point going toward the rotor or pointing outward toward the wheel?

Don't worry about actually pointing toward # 1 cylinder, just the tab under cap that goes to # 1 spark plug wire. # 1 cylinder needs to be at TDC on compression stroke, and rotor pointing at # 1 wire tab under cap.

Need firing order for 94 gmc 350 pu diagram dist and wires if possible thanks

For GMC 350 the firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

The distributor rotor turns clockwise when viewed from above, so the spark plug wires would be installed in the same order as the firing order, beginning with #1.

To find which contact in side the distributor cap that the rotor is "pointing" to, use a ratchet on the center bolt of the crankshaft and turn the engine over by hand (clockwise direction only as viewed from the front of the engine looking towards the firewall) until the timing mark on the harmonic balancer aligns with the "0" mark on the timing cover (may also be indicated by a deep "V" cut into the timing mark indicator attached to the timing cover).

Normally, the rotor will either be "pointing" towards the firewall with a bit more emphasis towards the driver's side cylinder bank, or it will be pointing towards the front of the passenger side front fender. If it is pointing towards the fender, turn the engine over again until the timing marks align and the rotor should be pointing towards the firewall as described above.

Find the closest terminal in the distributor cap that matches the rotor's alignment and install the #1 wire. The distributor cap and then be installed with the remaining wires installed around it clockwise from #1 using the firing order.

Some turning of the distributor may be necessary to get the engine statred. Once it does start, use a timing light to set the timing.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

1998 Windstar: 1998 windstar replaced rotors but steering still s...

make sure the wheel hub surfaces are clean and free of rust both in front of and behind the rotors. also check that your rear brake adjusters are working correctly. also check wheel berring, balljoint and tierod ends for play. theres should be no play and berring should spin free of noise.

I have my harmonic balancer set at 0 and the no. one cylinder is at top o. Where can i find no. wire going into the distrubeter? also i think the timing is off. what can i do to fixx these problems? THANKS

take off the distributor cap and look at the rotor. with the engine set the way you have it, the rotor should either be pointing to the block or the right front headlight. (In the general direction).
If it is pointing towards the engine turn the crank one more complete turn and it should point towards the light. Make a mark on the outside housing of the distributor exactly where the rotor points. Put the cap back on and the tower for #1 ignition wire should line up with the mark you made. If it is a 4.0 or four cylinder, there is no distributor adjustment (the computer adjusts timing) So, if the rotor is not lined up with the wire tower, you will need to remove the distributor and turn it one or more teeth in the direction you need to go and then repeat the alignment process again.

I need to know where is # 1 on the distributer so I can install t

front to rear, drivers side 1357 passenger side 2468
#1 on cap : turn engine by hand 'till timing mark on crank pulley is aligned with 0 (tdc) on scale. Remove cap. The rotor will be either pointing to the firewall or towards the front of the engine. If towards firewall turn one more time. Where it is pointing is #1. Worked on too many marine engines to remember for sure (think it turns clockwise) but just crank it once and watch which way the rotor turns. order is 18436572.

What is the nomber on cylender on 91 chev with a 350

Drivers side front to rear: 1357 passenger side f to r. 2468 order for distributor is 18436572 in the direction the rotor turns when cranking. Find TDC by placing the crank damper mark at 0 on the scale. Rotor should point towards front. If not, turn one more time and it will (not exactly but closer than towards rear) That position rotor is pointing to where #1 wire goes on cap. Depending on fuel quality, that engine "likes" about 8degrees advance.(regardless of "book" setting.)

Exact spark plug wire placement

Turn the crankshaft till the timing mark is at 0...Check where the rotor points...if towards the back of the engine, turn one more time till it points to front. It is now at #1 on cap. Plugs are 1357 on left bank, 2468 on right. order is 18436572 in that order around cap in the direction the rotor turns when cranking.
