Often on GM motors, which make engines for Pontiac. The order of the wires, called "Firing Order" is cast onto the intake manifold.

For a V8 350cc. engine, I remember it was 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2.

The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.
The distributor rotates in a clockwise direction. The engine must be on the compression stroke on the #1 cylinder. Line up the timing marks. Remove the cap and the rotor should be pointing to approximately the 5 o'clock position.

Good Luck

Adjust timing 1989 Pontiac Firebird Formula 350


To get at some of the bolts to loosen you need a special wrench that looks like a large square c. this consist of the handle end and the box end that goes on the bolt. First take a flashlight and look at the bottom of the distributor, the thing with the 8 spark plug wires and cap on it. You shouls see a small bolt with either a 1/2 inch head or 13 or 14 millimeter head. rare is it smaller then these 3 suggestions.carefully loosen the bolt a little so you can move the dist by turning it. Do this without the engine running. If you have a timing light you need to clip on your #1 spark plug wire. I not the old fashion way is to start the car and rev up the engine to about 1500 rpm or 1800 and the rotate the dist left and right until you gets the engine where it runs its best and then back it off a hair,have someone with you and have them remove their foot off the gas and then shut the car off. re tighten the bolt carefully and then restart and see hoe she runs. This method works very well, in most cases you should be within 5 degrees of correct timing. On some models with extra vacuum lines it may be off a little more...Until you can have someone else check it this can work in most cases..

1971 cadilac distributor cap wiring diagram. All that we need to know is the order


You will have to get number one up,the piston on number one cylinder,then remove the cap to see where the rotor is pointing,then start your number one plug wire there,make sure you go around the distributor the same way the rotor button turns,and the firing oder is 1563427,if it back fires,then you are 180 degrees out,remove the wires,and start them directly across from where you had number one,then it will start.

No fire


if you have an hei distibutor you need one 12 volt wire when cranking and running to the distributor. that is all that is need to hook to the distributor to run.the distributor will have a plug from the module that hooks into the cap/coil. you also have a tach hookup on the cap.

1984 pontiac bonnerville plug firing order photo


Hi,
I don't know your engine size, but the link below is a picture of the GM small block firing order with distributor.
The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.

1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor turns clockwise Number one should be in the 5 oclock position. You should be able to draw an imaginary straight line between the coil tower and number one tower on the cap and the number one spark plug.
