    always follow the book. with so many engines out there we all go by books as the golden rule. assuming from past experience can get confusing and cost money.

I have a 1975 winnebago from dodge Someone messed with the spark plug wires I need the fireing order and how the wires go on the cap Dodge winnebago 1975 v8

You could have 3 different engines in that rig.
The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 for most Dodge 8 cyl engines.
And the odd cylinders are on the driver side.
The small block engines ( 318 ) have the distributor in the back, and the big block engines ( 360 440 ) are in the front.
The rotor on the big blocks turn counterclockwise. The dist cap is usaully stamped with cyl 1 as a starting point.

I have 1999 318 4x4 dakota with fault coads

These are misfire codes.This means that your vehicle is missing.The 300 is a random misfire and the 305 is for cylinder 5,and the 306 is for cylinder number 6.Check the plugs if they are good then you could have bad coils.They are top of the plugs.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Dodge 318 wiring diagrams

Why not eBay? you may be able to find a "lightly" used harness from an appropriate dodge or Chrysler product that uses your engines?
Try for a Repair manual or electrical repair segment for an appropriate Chrysler product with your engine.
