I have a 1993 gmc 1500 350 tbi engine.I need to no if the rotor on the disturber points to the no.1 cylinder or the no.1 on the disturber cap when installing the disturber.please help


Your supposed to make a mark all that before you pull the distributor. Did you mark the relationship between distributor body and engine? Then you note where the rotor is pointing, make a scratch mark. When you reinstall the distributor, line up all the marks.

If engine was turned with distributor out, You need to put the #1 piston on tdc of compression stroke. Stab the distributor, which ever spark plug tower the rotor is pointing at/turning into, becomes number 1. Then you follow the firing order around the cap in clockwise direction.

I took of*** my spark plug wires working on my small block 350 pickup and I don't remember the the firing order to put the new wires back on. Is there a diagram anywhere or is it even that difficult to...


Next time number each lead before you remove it and no. the dissy cap as well

The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.
On classic chevy small block engines that use ignition breaker points instead of electronic ignitions, the number one cylinder is the one immediately clockwise of the small metal sash cover on the distributor cap. The firing order starts here. There is no sash cover on the distributor cap for GM HEI electronic ignitions, and the firing order is the same, but starting at the 5:30 position.
The firing order makes sense if you know how the cylinders are numbered. The number one cylinder is the front most on the drivers side and 2 being the front most on the passenger side. From front to back, the cylinders are odd numbered on the drivers side, and even numbered on the passenger side.
See the diagram; Click to open a printable larger image in a new window. The firing order starts with the number one cylinder. We would connect the number one spark plug wire to the distributor cap terminal in the 6:30 position. distributor.pngSince the next cylinder in the firing order is 8 (passenger side rear), we connect the number 8 spark plug wire to the next distributor cap terminal (approximately 7:30 position) in the clockwise direction from number one. You need to be sure you continue the firing order in the clockwise direction around the chevy small block distributor cap from the last installed spark plug wire. Setting the rest of the firing order is just a matter of repetition. Be sure to count the spark plugs from front to back on each side of the motor to identify the correct cylinder number in the firing order.

Where is the indication of firing order on the distributor cap of a 1990 chevy 4.3L (silverado 4X4 6 cyl)?


There wont be a firing order on the dist cap , there might be a firing order stamped onto the intake manifold near usually infront of the throttle body.
to get the cap wiring you will need a manual, some auto store will print you off pictures of the cap firing order and cylinder numbering, just ask.

I changed spark plugs ,wire ,disturbator cap fuel filter, air flt


Platinum plugs are good, but you may have to replace the one that is back firing. It sounds like you may have the the firing order mixed up causing detonation. Two or more if your spark plugs may be firing at the exhaust stroke, rather then the compression stroke. The firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6 and on the passenger side you have 1-3-5 ( 1 ) being towards the radiator and on the drivers side  2-4-6 ( 2 ) being towards the radiator. The distributor cap should be labeled on the inside as to the #1 spark plug wire. The cap rotates counter clock wise and the #1 should be the drivers side towards the radiator. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
