I'm having trouble getting the correct firing order for my 1995 vs Statesman any help would be appreciated


Any v8 308 holden motor has the same firing order so any manual will give you the order and the direction that the rotor button spins. It is 12784563 with 1357 being on the drivers side and the distributor turning clockwise. If you have a 253 v8 type in firing order for holden 253 v8 in google search and you will get even more information. If you have the original inlet manifold the piston order is stamped in the casting

Where is the emergency shut off in a 1995 geo prizm?


All cars, EFI. (some have 3 fuse to operate ECU/spark/ fuel) check em yet?
check power to pump 12v cranking?
no, ? 12v, or 6v? (6v or near is corroded wires /conns)
check power (12v) from fuel pump relay cranking, got 12v there.
if yes , the the path is broken to the rear ) (inertial switch?, not in 95)
if not,12v now, the FP relay is bad or ECU is not turning it on.
if 12v is across the FP relay coil the ECU is working.
if 12v is across this relay, and output is dead, that is a bad relay
or the FI use feeding it is blown.
btw #1 all cars cut fuel (INJ) when spark is detected bad. (ecu)
btw#2 some (software) cut the fuel pump for same reasons.
btw#3, most cars, only activate the FP relay for 3 seconds key on, each time. and some cars only cranking, and running.
all these facts, need to be known to make progress, in EFI.
and more.

Need hei distributor wiring diagram


That distributor is an easy one. You need to connect the harness attached to the distributor housing to the cap. There is a marking on the cap that says "Batt" Connect that to the hot lead from the ignition switch that is on (with 12V present) and off with switch off. Likely the connector and wire are still in the engine compartment somewhere near the distributor. The other lead connection is marked "tach" you don't need to connect it anywhere but can attach a hand held or on dash tachometer to it.
If you get no spark from the distributor, either the module inside it is bad (no test for that. they are either good or bad) or one of the wires coming from the pickup coil that attach to the module has broken (common on those). (assuming good or new cap, rotor and coil).
It's a very simple and reliable distributor. In fact I'm using one on a 305 Monte Carlo racemobile right now. (with MSD coil, cap and rotor)!!!

Wiring an hei distributor


You shouldn't need a spark box because thee coil is located in the dist. cap. You need to run a 12v switched power source to the side of the dist. cap that is marked dist. if it isn't maked it is the term. that is on the front right of the conector pad. the one on the left is for hooking up a tach.

Msd distributer


What exactly are you trying to fix? I use the stock type 3-wire distributor in my 68 Mustang and use an MSD 6AL box with a Blaster II coil. What's your truck doing? Why are you going to replace the distributor? Need more info. in order to help you fix your problem. Shoot me an email tiqautoperformance@live.com. I'd be more than happy to help you through your problem. I an owner/operator of an auto repair/hot rod shop. I specialize in Fords.
