According to my Chilton book this is same for either engine. The firing order is 1-5-6-3-4-2-7-8. Standing at the front of the car looking at the engine #1 piston is at 9 o'clock on the distributor and it turns clockwise. The hold down screws for the cap should be at 12 and 6 o'clock nd the window to set dwell should be at 9. The odd number pistons are on the passenger side starting from the rad and the even numbers on the driver's side from the rad. Hope this helps.

Why cadillac deville won't start when hot?


Sounds like the module inside the distributor is starting to fail. If the engine turns over at normal speed but won't start then grab a spark checker and put it at the end of a spark plug wire and crank the engine. If if sparks then you have a fuel problem. If no spark then look to the distributor module or possibly the wiring harness inside the distributor. I have seen where the power wire, pink I believe, goes open at the black plastic box connector inside the distributor and can be tested with an ohmmeter. If that is the problem then replace the 2 wiring harnesses that make up the distributor wiring harness because the plastic connector will break apart when trying to remove the terminal and that makes it difficult to put back together. Hope that helps

Firing Orders
NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a
time, for replacement.

If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it
could have been removed and installed improperly and then rewired. The new
wiring arrangement would maintain the correct firing order, but could change the
relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason
it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them.
Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying
illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes of the current
plug wire locations and orientation of the distributor cap.

To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired.

Dual distributor spark plug wiring diagram for model building.


You are correct in your idea about how the plug wires are attached. If you want to duplicate control wiring you would need to obtain the wiring diagram of the brand of ignition system you want to duplicate. (MSD etc. These systems also require a small battery in order for them to operate. Wiring to distributor was far less complex when vertex type magneto distributors sere used as all that was required was a ground wire to shut them down (exactly like your lawnmower works), As far as plumbing, all systems need to meet safety standards set forth by the NHRA but aside from meeting those standards, each engine builder decides where to locate such items as primary and secondary fuel injectors etc. If you go to the NHRA website, you may be able to find a decent photo of someones engine...that may be helpful. Also check the rule book for such items as kill switch location, brake, chute release etc.

Make sure you give it a good tune up. Make sure that your rotor is moving when you crank it over. If it is moving then you will need to replace the distributor module.
