Question about 1978 Chevrolet C1500
I need help on how and where to put #1 plug wire on a chevy 350 electronic ignition were do i put #1 plug wire in the distributor cap and how do i set the timing?
Take out number 1 spark plug and put your finger as to block the hole ,have a friend bump the starter till you feel air rush out real fast / called the compression stroke when it does stop and look down the top center for timing marks on the pulley and line them up on the timing cover then place the distributor in place as so the rotor is pointing at the #1 piston location, basically the dr. front corner and start there, timing order is 1..8..4..3..6..5..7..2.. now if you get all these in right 1..3..5..7 are on the drivers side front to back and 2..4..6..8 on the passengers bank front to back and the distributor turns clockwise .good luck hope this helps you.

Frist find the timing marks on the balancer and the timing cover. there will be o mark, number 1 spark plug will be on the left bank remove the spark plug, bump the mtr with the spark plug removed until you here air coming from that cyclinder that will be the commpession stroke, rotate the mtr by hand until you algin the timig mark on the balancer with the 0 mark on the timing indacator on the timing cover. remove the dist cap and the dist rotor should be pointing at number 1 plug wire on the cap, as long as the dist has not been removed our installed wrong, when you put the timing light to this mtr make sure that the vauccmn line going to the dist is disconnected and pluged, i would set it at 6 degrees after tdc, keep in mind the condition off the mtr
