The fireing order should be on the intake, the rotor button will be pointing to number oneonly if you got number one piston on top dead center. first you need to determan witch side number one is on, when you find that out take the spark out and have someone turn it over for you while you got your finger plugging the sparkplug hole, when it blows your finger out your close to number one,watch harmonic balancer while you do this to ditermin how far past you go from number onewitch you will, you may have to back the harmonic up to get T.D.C. also watch rotation of rotor. there is a mark on the harmonic to pointer, it has before T.D.C. and after T.D.C.you want it on 0. when you get this all done see where rotor is pointing that will be number one. in the future, just food for thought when you do a tune up its best to chg. one plug wire at a time then you will not have to go thru this again. good luck and hope this helps. OLD SCHOOL.

Changed distributor And put new one in got it out of time


possibly all you got wrong is the firing order for the plug wires. Put the engine on no 1 firing as per the timing mark and see which plug lead that rotor button is pointing to. Use that as no 1 lead and adjust the rest of the leads to suit the firing order. IF by chance that the rotor button points between the contacts in the cap the pull the distributor and turn the rotor button until when you have the distributor back in ,the button is pointing to a plug lead contact and adjust the firing order from that.

Change my spark plugs and distrubutor cap and the 85 ranger want start


You may have got the spark plug wires out of sequence.
Reseat the coil wire going to the center of the distributor cap Check the spark plug wires at the distributor against the firing order as follows:
The spark plug firing order is 1 - 4 - 2 - 5 - 3 - 6 The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered :
firewall 3 - 6 2 - 5 1 - 4 front

if you are certain that the wires have been replaced correctly then you could have a bad set of wires even though they are new this happens sometimes but it sounds as if the firing order is off check the engines timing to see if its still in time.

301 & 306 are cylinder #1 and #6 misfire. Your spark plug wires are not in the proper firing order in relation to the correct cylinder and distributor locations.

To avoid confusion, tag and remove the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes to reflect how your engine is wired.

Cannot start changing pugs and wires


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

For a 4 the firing order is 1234 front to back and the distributor fires clockwise. Find one and run wires from there.

For a 6 its 123456 front to back and is also clockwise.
