How did you make the determination that all the firing orders are wrong? No matter what the source was, the firing order should be the same no matter who you got the information from. Am I correct on this.....that everybody keeps giving you the same firing order??? As a point of emphasis I would like to know if you recieved conflicting specifications regarding the firing order. You may want verify the calibration of the distributor's position. At TDC the distributor rotor should be pointing to #1 cylinder terminal on the distributor cap, or 90 degrees across from it. Please verify.

When setting the timing marks together distributor always points to #6 not #1 put new timing chain & gears in but cant get it timed right 5.2


Is it possible to turn the distributor shaft 180 degrees and reinstall the dist ?
I am assuming you have spark at the plugs, just not at the right time ?
If the distributor has not been moved, and the rotor points to the wrong wire, you could have put the cam gear in upside down ?

I need to know the timing marks for installing the timing chain and in 1992 GMC sonoma st in the firing order on the distributor and the engine block.


I highly recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. The Haynes Manual has photo references that show the alignment as well as a diagram of the firing order on the Distributor. Typically the #1 is marked on the the Distributor cap and they are sequential clockwise after that. The Firing order is actually controlled by the order you connect the wires to the Distributor.
