Isuzu seem to have complicated things by changing engines, firing orders and even direction of rotation! As you can see, they've numbered the cylinders the other way than the 3.2L.
The Firing sequence for the 3.1 (traditional distributor) 6 cylinder is as follows -
If you take the distributor cap off, there should be a "No.1" formed on the inside. Stick a lead on this before you put the cap back on and go from there.
As leads are different lengths, you may have to swap a few to find the best fit.
I think 2 of them will look out of place - but that's the way it's designed. Just make use of clips for holding them neatly.
Thanks for using Fixya.

there should be a tag on one of the rearend cover bolts indicating the ratio.if not remove cover count all the teeth on the ring gear and pinion,divide the ring gear # by the # of pinion teeth and that will be your ratio.

Hi meduck4,heres what you need brother as I cant see your diff, 3 ways to tell what you have:
#1 The first is the driver's door tag; there will be a one-letter or one-numeral axle code listed there. You can then compare it to the chart below: CODE Rear Axle Ratio Conventional Locking 8 M 2.73 Y Z 3.08 F R 3.45 5 E 3.27 6 W 3.73
#2 The second is the axle tag, attached to the lower lefthand bolt on the rear axle itself. The bottom left line will give you the gear ratio, and the type of rear end (S for limited slip non-locking, and L for locking).
#3 The 7.5" rear axle height is shorter than the width and the shape appears "oval".
The 8.8" rear axle dimensions are equal and the shape appears "round".
This will tell you what you have my friend,good luck

There are two different ratios for a S10 Blazer,a 3.42(GU6) and a 3.08(GU4).Look in your glove box for a GM option codes.Look for a GU6 or GU4 code for the type of ratio you have.Hope this helps.
