Hi. This is a question from Sweden about a 1971 cadillac eldorado. When mounting camshaft sprocket and krankshaft sprocket and chain with timig marks on their places, which cylinder shall be in the firing...

Standing in front of the car, #1 piston is the front one on your left. All odd number pistons are on this side and all even number pistons are on your right, front to back.
When you are lining this all up make sure your #1 piston is in the proper position to the crank. Check the position of your rotor button in the distributor. It should be lined up to #1, which is about 8:30 on a clock.Then turn the engine by hand past TDC and make sure the exhaust valve starts to open. The crankchaft turns twice to every one turn of the camshaft so it is possible for your timing to look right but not work. Hope this helps.

Need firing order diagram for a 1970 302 boss motor. What cylinders are number what? It is a Torino but you do not have that listed below.

Pistons 1-2-3-4 are front to back on the passenger side of the engine and 5-6-7-8 are front to back on driver's side. The distributor turns counter clockwise and #1 piston is the first on the driver's side of the clip at the back of the cap. The 2 clips should be at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock, standing at the front of the car. The firing order should be 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. I got this from Chiltons. Hope this helps.

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.
