SOURCE: HEI DISTRIBUTOR PROBLEMS

on the intake manifold you will see 8 numbers, this is your firing order
from the front of the car the left side numbers are 1,3,5,7 and the right side are 2,4,6,8. now ont the distributor cap there should be a number 1 at one of the plug towers. you start there with #1 plug wireand continue.
on a chevy the firing order is 18436572 and this is the order you put the wires on the cap. now the second problem i don't know right off hand which way the rotor turns on your engine. so remove the cap and crank the engine over and see which way the rotor turns, this is the order you put the wires back on the cap. hope this helps

Your clips for the cap should be just to the right of 12 and 6 o'clock. #1 plug is the first one to the right of the 12 o'clock clip, so about 12:30. Hope this helps.

NO POWER TO THE DISTRIBUTOR ON 87 CADI DEVILLE THERE IS POWER TO CAP


I owned a similar 1986 caddy

12 Volts on pink wire to dist with key on

The top of the cap is the HEI Ignition Coil

Inside dist is the pickup coil (no crank sensor)
& ignition module with the 3 or 4 wires

Maybe the module failed- if you have no spark
at plug wires

What order do the spark plug wires go on a1974 Cadillac Deville


My Chilton book only shows 1 firing order for Cadillac engines from 1968 to 1974. It is 1-5-6-3-4-2-7-8. The distributor runs clockwise. #1 wire should be between 8 and 9 o'clock,from the front of the car. This should place it over the window used to set the dwell. The odd number cylinders are on the passenger side, front to back and the even ones on the driver's side, front to back. Hope this helps.
