What is the firing order diagram for 1972 delta oldsmobile

The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The distributor turns counter clockwise and #1 is at the 4 o'clock position on the cap. There should be 2 screws holding the cap on the distributor at 2 and 7 o'clock. Back up 2 positions from the 7 o'clock one for #1 piston. Hope this helps.

Where can I find a spark plug wiring diagram for 1997 3.1l engine

Normally the firing order will be stamped on the top of the intake manifold also the number one plug will be the front one on the drivers side of the car. On the top of the distributor cap you should see a number one that is where the number one plug wire goes follow the firing order on the manifold and go clock wise on the distributor cap
