1983 f150 351w distributor cap placement


I assume its a V8 and probably a 5.0L

5.0= 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8 firing order

5.0 HO and 351 Windsor share 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 firing order

Cylinder numbering:

When looking into the engine bay the number one cylinder should be on your left hand side (left bank) at the front of the engine. The number eight cylinder is on the rear right (right bank) up against the firewall.

1983 nissan 280 zx car back fires when cold


Sounds like you could have an aux air regulator valve, that is not working when it will not work; there is no fast idle cold. Should be around 1500 rpm cold, the car will stall out and pop through the intake when bad. You have a digital volt meter to do some testing with to make sure the mass air flow is working correctly.

Also, c
heck the plugs for how they're burning, check the air filter for good flow, do a compression test and judge from there. Intake backfire is usually caused by running lean or improper timing.

For the 79 model zx, ignition timing was 10 degrees BTDC @ 700rpm
For 80 and up zx, non turbo - 8 degrees BTDC +- 2 degrees @ 700rpm
turbo - 20 degrees BTDC +- 3 degrees @ 700 rpm

Also done with distributor vacuum advance hose removed and plugged.
NOTE:
* BTDC = Before Top Dead Center
* + - = Plus or minus
Hope thos helps; keep us updated.

Sounds like you have the firing order right but your off on the #1 on the distributer. Every time you get an explosion coming from the carb its misfiring. Find the #1 on dist and continue with firing order
