What's the firing order of a Mitsubishi 6g74 engine v6 right hand drive ?


If dizzy is still in place and leads are connected.
Remove dizzy cap and get someone to give starter short kick with ig key making sure hands are clear of moving partsand not touching leads. if rotor button goes clockwise then set to top dead centre with timing mark on pulley rotor button should point to no. 1 so by following plugs you can work out firing order. heads usually have cylinders numbered .

How to remove & install distributor on 1998 Suzuki jlx


answsered here 100s of times now, ok.
does the engine run now< and not fiddle by the wild bunch?
then that is very easy,
first mark all wires. 1,2,3,4 (1,3,4,2 ) is firing order
the rotor turns CCW (do not read GM book lies)
the front cylinder is #1
mark cap tower term.as #1 (the front wire goes there)
  1. now remove cap (distributor)
  2. turn engine by hand until rotor points to #1 location.
  3. This is TDC #1 firing point. (see crank pulley notch at 0?)
  4. I also mark #1 on rim of dissy. (cuz, im careful) and (ask)
  5. remove the clamp bolt and side plug.
  6. pull dizzy out. (distributor slang)
  7. put new dizzy in, allowing for the 13tooth gears to mesh and turn and landing with rotor on #1 mark! . (3 tries, sure)
  8. set clamp bolt, plug in side plug.
  9. Cap back on wires same as before, do not scramble the wires.
  10. new rotor on installed wrong, cheap rotors are just that the install wrong, and never a BOSCH rotor , it fits 1 way only.
  11. The engine now starts.
  12. set static timing using the timing freeze jumper detailed below.
  13. open hood (usa,) look up,see that EPA sticker and timing spec, bingo.

covers all ways (vast) to mess it up, too, not just the simple replace.

I have a few issues going on at once with a 67 mgb this car stands a lot of time only really moves for rego inspection any how I had trouble getting it to run I pulled the dizzy and didnt observe the


pull no 1 plug and turn the crank until you feel compression under your thumb over the plug hole.. Keep going until the timing mark lines up with the pointer ( about 10 degrees advanced) check and ensure that the point gap are set correctly Place the rotor button facing no 1 plug lead or a mark in the body of the distributor. (hacksaw cut across the lip) place the distributor in the hole allowing for the rotor button to turn because of the cut of the gears . Turn the ignition on and turn the body of the distributor until you see/hear a spark across the points. lock the distributor at this point (This should be just as the points open in the direction of rotation) fit the cap and fit the leads in the firing order.This will get the engine started and by the use of a timing light on no 1 cylinder lead you can set the timing exactly.

How did you make the determination that all the firing orders are wrong? No matter what the source was, the firing order should be the same no matter who you got the information from. Am I correct on this.....that everybody keeps giving you the same firing order??? As a point of emphasis I would like to know if you recieved conflicting specifications regarding the firing order. You may want verify the calibration of the distributor's position. At TDC the distributor rotor should be pointing to #1 cylinder terminal on the distributor cap, or 90 degrees across from it. Please verify.

92 toyota 4X4, 4 cyl. Turns over, getting fire, wont crank, even sprayed either in the efi still nothing. Im thinkin - jumped time, how can i tell for sure, b4 i take the front of engine off. Please...


Set the crank at the zero degrees point on the pointer scale. look at rotor under the dist. cap. (If on number 4 plug tower, turn crank one revolution and back to zero degrees.) If timing has not jumped, rotor will be directly pointing to number one spark plug tower.

What is the firing order for 1987 Suzuki Samuri and which point do I start on cap?


my guess, dizzy pulled or wires removed, all at once?

1,3,4,2 (crank motor , look to see direction, many books show it wrong, so you look)
the rotor left the factor 1 way, after 20 year's 20 mechanics set it
their way. 1of 4 ways. all 4 work, on some the vac, can hits things. so...

Find TDC #1 firing, (lash loose at #1 , #1 is FRONT) then look at rotor.
bingo #1 is THERE.
first g o o g le hit
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17sfS1Cz3gQ

most pages skip this first check. even autozoned does. that.
out of factory #1 was at the clamp bolt, id not assume that.
in fact i never do, on any dizzy car made. (cept, slotted dizzy drives)
this car is gear drive and can be time wrong.

here , this post gets it right, cept the Haynes, is a bad book. IMO

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_set_the_timing_1988_suzuki_1.3

one way to find TDC #1 front firing, is the wad of paper trick
1; SPARK PLUG 1 OUT. KEYS, IN POCKET !
stuff small wad of paper or a cotton ball (wife) in to spark hole 1.
key off , turn crank by hand CW (clock wise) see wad blow out.
this is the Compression stroke. keep turning crank cw until the Crank
TDC mark hits 0 (firing)
the rotor brass tip , now points to #1 REAL.
if valve cover off, you do same until both valve #1 are loose, lash.
if lash is sat wrong, you burn the valves up so no excuse for
#1 valves never loose. (hint , fix that first. do the 60,000 service now)

Nissan ca20e distributor replacement. rotor position for TDC when replacing DizzyI have removed old dizzy with out looking or marking. thank you


Here's about the best way to do it, if you left off the dizzy marking. Take the spark plugs out, and put your finger OVER, NOT IN, spark plug hole #1. When you feel the compression bump your finger off the hole, stop right there. Align the cap so that Cylinder #1 is just being fired/a little after being fired (The rotor bug is pointing to #1). Start it up, and tune it from there.

Nissan ca20 e distributor replacement. How do I replace dizzy in correct timing to line up with tdc


if you take old dizzy out,wherever motor is stopped,just put new one in,taking note of position of rotor,to where the old rotor was pointing.pick a spot on the motor or bonnet when you first take cap off,to where rotor is pointing,then note where dizzy sitting in relation to clamp bolt.OR,get timing pulley on TDC,then note where rotor pointing

I'm needing a wiring diagram of the firing order for a 1992 Suzuki Sidekick 4 cylinder 16valve


The firing order is 1, 3, 4, 2. If all the leads have been pulled off the dizzy cap, you'll have to remove No 1 spark plug (leave it threaded into the plug hole by 1 turn) and the dizzy cap. Turn the motor over by hand in the clockwise direction and listen for air being forced out of the No 1 plug hole. When you start to hear that, it means you are approaching TDC on No 1 cylinder. Now look at the front crankshaft pulley and stop turning the engine when the mark on the pulley is close to the marks on the timing belt cover. It doesn't have to be exact (unless you've removed the dizzy). Now where the dizzy rotor is pointing is where No 1 lead has to be fitted. Observe the direction of rotation of the rotor and the next point it comes to will be where you fit No 3 lead; No 4 lead next; and finally No 2 lead.
