Question about 1988 Dodge Dakota
The engine was replaced a few years ago with another 3.9 liter, but it was out of a Dodge full size van. I have the firing order for the motor, it's stamped on the engine block. I do not know where those numbers are indicated on each cylinder (spark plug). I need a diagram of which cylinder is which to connect the wires for each individual plug from the distributor. The firing order is 1-6-5-4-3-2. Also, do I go clockwise, or counter clockwise on the distributor when starting at 1 on the distributor cap? As far as the cylinders go, on the passenger side & drivers side, how do I know what each individual plug number is to hook up to the distributor?
My sincere apologies for the delayed response.
