First locate your 1 piston If memory servs it is front driver side, make sure it is at tdc ( top dead center ) on the compression stroke, then remove distributor cap and make sure the rotor button is set to fire on the # 1 position, replace cap this should get u running but you u still need to adjust with a timing light, but if ur familuer with these motors it can be easier to set it by the sound, to fine toon loosen bolt on distributor just enough to make it difficult to turn, play with the direction u turn the distributor til u get good throttle response , usually run engine up til it chatters a little then back off just a little hop this helps

Let me go outside and look. may be easier to fix ya up some kind of chart off a picture. Did not remember it being too complicated until I went to post this. Basically point the rotor directly at no.1 cyl. and then follow the track of the rotor one wire @ a time to the cylinder listed in the firing order printed on the intake manifold.1 front of driver side, then 2 front pass side , then 3 next one back driver side and 4next bact pass side and so on.

Distributor cap and spark plug leads order/layout?


The firing order is 1342. The cylinders are numbered from left to right 1234. Depending on wether it is a 16 valve engine, the distributor cap lead number one position is at the front on the left, if its a normal 8 valve engine , the distributor cap lead number one is at the front pointing straight at the front. So, moving anti clockwise, the next lead will be number 3, then 4 , then 2.

Distributor cap firing order diagram


1-3-4-2
Marker on dist is number 1 (TDC) next with correct rotation of the crankshaft should be cyl 3 and so on. The corresponding firing order should have a TDC orientation meaning during power stroke the valves should be both closed. Same at the dist cap 1-3-4-2 in the correct direction of rotation.

1988 5.7 TBI Nightmare This is the start of what the problem was and is, I had a RV cam installed when the engine was rebuilt a year ago. the cam was not a computer friendly cam so after a round with the rebuilder and discovering the specs weren't the correct ones for the cam I installed a 3702 edelbrock cam and lifters with a 7800 timing chain and gear set after I had tried two chips from Jet and no improved performance and the 3rd chip was to be for the cam and that is what is in the ECU now and I have tried about 5 different BCC chips and the bottom line is the power is there but something is happening its hit and miss the idle will sometimes lope, is stalled when first started and acts as if its starving for fuel or its bogged with to much fuel. the fuel pressure is 10 - 13 psi and I have R/R the TPS, IAC, ESC and knocks device , EGR and Solenoid, MAP, Temp sensor, and the Dist is a Procomp 10001 with a MSD-5526 coil. the Throttle Body was rebuild and the ECM was replaced with a Rebuilt ECM. it will smell rich etc. but with the things that goes on it does not show any codes?? I have no clue just feel stupid this is been a simple thing that is kicking my **** and now its a challenge but still loosing the fight too far in and too much spent to stop,. LOL Help !!!! The BCC is a california vehicle AFBX, 5.7TBI TH400 A/T P.S. the key can be turned of and back on as the engine not dying and seems to correct the power and run problems but will not last goes back to running bad or with problems. ?
