The order of firing is as follows; 18436572 in a clockwise rotation. The number one plug falls between 5:00 and 4:30 as you face the cap from the front of the engine(standing at the radiator) . Thank you, Dana

Timing is off on my 1990 ford f150 v8 302


There are a few ways and if I remember correctly, if you have a Module on the distributor you also have a wire sprout which must be disconnected to get base timing.

That being said, those modules still had a timing mark on the crankshaft damper and a timing mark pointer. You want to have the crankshaft visibly marked and the pointer at the DEGREES recommended for the motor. You will see TDC on most dampers and then advance it maybe 6 degrees as marked.

Assuming you are close to begin with, AFTER lining up the parts as recommended, mark the distributor #1 plug position on the cap to distributor housing so that the #1 plug terminal is known when the cap is temporarily removed, wires intact.

Then see where the rotor is pointed and remove the distributor and clock the rotor to align with the mark you put on the distributor housing. If you have a gear drive, the gear will need to be moved slightly for the rotor to twist into place when the distributor is seated. With a timing light, check where the spark is occurring for #1.

You may be close enough for the engine to start.

Other ways involve removing a plug(#1) and turning the engine until compression pushes your finger away from the cylinder hole. Line the timing marks up per specs, do the same process for the distributor rotor and try it again.

If this still does not produce the results you want, make sure the plug wires were not switched. Finally removing the valve cover to observe when intake and exhaust are both closed will help, but it is a lot off unnecessary work to be avoided.

How do i install a distributor to a nissan pick up


It is necessary to place the No. 1 cylinder in the firing position to correctly install the distributor. To locate this position, the ignition timing marks on the crankshaft front pulley are used.

Remove the No. 1 cylinder spark plug. Turn the crankshaft until the piston in the No. 1 cylinder is moving up on the compression stroke. This can be determined by placing your thumb over the spark plug hole and feeling the air being forced out of the cylinder. Stop turning the crankshaft when the timing marks indicate TDC or 0.

Oil the distributor housing lightly where the distributor bears on the cylinder block.

Install the distributor so that the rotor, which is mounted on the shaft, points toward the No. 1 spark plug terminal tower position when the cap is installed. Of course you won't be able to see the direction in which the rotor is pointing if the cap is on the distributor. Lay the cap on the top of the distributor and make a mark on the side of the housing just below the No.1 spark plug terminal plug terminal. Make sure that the rotor points toward that mark when you install the distributor. On the VG30i, align the mark on the distributor shaft with the protruding mark on the housing.

When the distributor shaft has reached the bottom of the hole, move the rotor back and forth slightly until the driving lug on the end of the shaft enter the slots cut in the end of the oil pump shaft and the distributor assembly slides down into place.

When the distributor is correctly installed, the breaker points should be in such a position that they are just ready to break contact with each other or a lobe of the reluctor is aligned with the stator contact. This is accomplished by rotating the distributor body after it has been installed in the engine. Once again, line up the marks that you made before the distributor was removed from the engine. On the VG30i, the distributor rotor should be in the 11:25 o'clock position (between 11 and 12 o'clock).
  1. Install the distributor hold-down bolt.
  2. Install the spark plugs.
  3. Install the cap, primary wire, and vacuum line(s).
  4. Install the spark plug leads. Consult the marks made during removal to be sure that the proper lead goes to each plug. Install the high tension wire if it was removed.
  5. Start the engine. Check the timing and adjust it if necessary.

I recently replace the timing chain in my nissan pick. I moved the distributor when I was removing the front cover and now it won't start. How do I fix this?


find top dead center on clyinder 1 a good way to do this is take off valve cover and line up cam notch with mark on head check to make sure crank shaft timing also is lined up.Pull out distributor and re install so that the rotor inside the distributor is pointing to number 1 plug wire.(find the number 1 spark plug.You will need to remove the distributor cap.Make sure that the distributor is all the way in when checking rotor position.

I have a 94 s10 blazer 4.3 and I had to remove the distributor but never marked it so now the timing is messed up. The distributor dose not have a #6 alignment mark so I cant get it working right. How do I...


Remove cylinder # 1 spark plug, # 1 is the front one on drives side, turn crankshaft pulley to TDC on compression stroke, you'll feel the comperssion at cylinder #1 spark plug hole, follow cylinder # 1 spark plug wire to distributor cap, mark outer part of distributor where # 1 sits, remove distributor and restabe distributor with rotor at mark you made, then set timing.

I dont know how to put my spark plug wires in my car


firing order 1-4-2-5-3-6

  1. Insert each ignition wire on proper terminal of distributor cap . Ensure ignition wires are properly seated on the terminals. The No. 1 terminal is identified on distributor cap .
not sure if #1 cylinder is on the front right or front left. Call a dealer.

Installation
Before installing distributor , visually inspect distributor . Inspect the O-ring. It should fit tightly and be free of cuts. The drive gear should be free of nicks, cracks and excessive wear. Rotate distributor drive shaft. It should move freely, without binding.
  1. To install distributor correctly, No. 1 piston (6108) must be at Top Dead Center (TDC) of compression stroke. Remove No. 1 cylinder spark plug (12405) and rotate crankshaft (6303) clockwise until No. 1 piston is on the compression stroke.
  1. With No. 1 piston on compression stroke, align timing pointer with TDC on the crankshaft damper.
  1. Align locating boss on distributor rotor with hole on armature. Fully seat distributor rotor on distributor shaft.
  1. Rotate distributor shaft so blade on distributor rotor is pointing toward mark on distributor base that was previously made in Step 2 of the Removal procedure.
  1. While installing, continue rotating distributor rotor slightly so leading edge of the vane is centered in vane switch stator assembly.
  1. Rotate distributor in engine front cover to align leading edge of vane and vane switch stator assembly. Verify distributor rotor is pointing at No. 1 mark on distributor base. If vane and vane switch stator cannot be aligned by rotating distributor in engine front cover , remove distributor enough to just disengage distributor gear from camshaft gear. Rotate distributor rotor enough to engage distributor gear on another tooth of camshaft gear. Repeat Step 1 if necessary.
  1. Install distributor hold-down clamp and bolt. Tighten bolt, but leave it loose enough to rotate distributor .
  1. Install distributor cap , No. 1 spark plug and ignition wires. Check that ignition wires are securely connected to the distributor cap and spark plugs . Tighten distributor cap hold-down screws to 2.0-2.6 Nm (18-23 lb-in).
  1. Reconnect distributor to engine control sensor wiring .
  1. Set initial engine ignition timing according to procedures found in Section 8A of the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis Manual.
  1. After engine ignition timing is set, tighten distributor hold-down bolt on to 20-30 Nm (15-22 lb-ft).
  1. Recheck initial engine ignition timing. Adjust if necessary.

Intake manifold gasket


make sure the #1 cylinder is at top dead center then make sure the rotor in the distributor is pointing at the # 1 spark plug wire on the distributor cap............if you have already done this you have the timing 180 degrees out and you need to point the rotor 1 half turn(exactly opposite the #1 spark plug wire on the distributor cap)

With the timming marks lined up make sure that cylinder 1 is at top dead center on the compresion stroke, then as you lower the distributer back in make sure that the rotor is pointing to the number 1 plug wire post on the distributor cap,mark the distributor where the #1 post is since you can't install it with the cap on.
