IVE GOT TDC on #1 now do I put the distributer rotor pointing toward #1?


It depends which tdc ... Remember that the piston will be at TDC on both the compression and exhaust stroke.

If you turn a distributor to point the rotor rotor arm at no 1 terminal on the exhaust stroke, your timing is 180 degrees out.

Other wise yes, point the rotor arm at No1 terminal.

To check which TDC it is.. place your finger over the no 1 spark plug hole and get somebody to turn the engine for you. You'll feel the compression build up.

I have 351 motor and have tdc but the rotor is pointing toward #8 is that right?


Depends.
If you have tdc on the number one cylinder, and it is tdc on the compression stroke, then the rotor should be close to cyl one.
A four cycle engine has four up and down strokes, compression, power, exhaust, and so on.
Depending on the make model and year, the firing order could be 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8 which would mean the timing chain or the distributor is one cylinder too far advanced if it is pointing to number 8.

92 dodge D150 3.9l replaced timmin gears and chain new distributor rotor wires plugs timmin is dead on but will not start


Can you take the valve cover off and turn the crank until the number one valve closes, then check the rotor on the dist ?
TDC for number one cyl is when that intake valve closes.
I assume you checked the compression and all 6 cylinders are ok ?
If you have compression and the valve timing is close, you should be able to turn the dist and get it to backfire or something if the ignition timing is the only problem.

I need the correct firing order diagram for a 1982 ford f150 351 windsor please help at least a link to a site



The firing order is ( 1 - 3 - 7 - 2 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 8 )

The distributor rotor turns COUNTERCLOCKWISE

The marked # 1 position on the distrubutor cap faces to the REAR and slightly towards the drivers side

The engine cylinders / spark plug locations are numbered :


firewall

4 - 8

3 - 7

2 - 6

1 - 5

front

If someone has altered the disstributer, pull #1 plug, put finger over hole, turn engine over until compression on that cyl, line up timing marks (ball park only) and rotor will be pointing at the correct terminal for #1 cylinder plug wire connection, in the cap.

My cam shaft timming gear and my crank shaft timming gear dots line up and my harmonick balancer timming mark is on 0 which way should my rooter button face towards number 1 or towards rear of engine


The rotor should be pointing close to number 1, but keep in mind that the spark is actually supposed to happen before the piston gets to tdc so the rotor will be a little bit past the number 1 terminal when the crankshaft indicates that you're at tdc.

With the 2T-C, 3T-C, and 3K-C engines the Firing Order is 1-3-4-2
The distributor rotates ->Clockwise. (The rotor actually)

Number 1 spark plug tower on the distributor cap, faces directly towards the engine. Number 2 faces the back of the engine, Number 4 faces the front of the engine, Number 3 is to the outside away from the engine.

Number 1 spark plug is at the front of the engine. 1-2-3-4

With the 4A-C engine, and other A-Series, the Firing Order is 1-3-4-2
The distributor rotates ->CounterClockwise.

Number 1 spark plug tower is towards the engine, and faces the back of the engine. Number 3 spark plug tower is away from the engine, and faces the back of the engine.
Number 2 spark plug tower is towards the engine, and faces the front.
Number 3 spark plug tower is away from the engine, and faces the front.
