Diagram or picture of where the spark plug wires go into the distributer on a engine number 318-1


For this you have to determine when the #1 cylinder is at TDC (Top Dead Center) - when it would be firing. Take the distributor cap off and look at the rotor - it would be pointing at the #1 spark plug wire on the distributor. The wires would be connected it order around the distributor cap starting at 1. The sequence is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 in a clockwise fashion.

You may have got the spark plug wires out of sequence.
Reseat the coil wire going to the center of the distributor cap Check the spark plug wires at the distributor against the firing order as follows:
The spark plug firing order is 1 - 4 - 2 - 5 - 3 - 6 The distributor rotor turns CLOCKWISE The engine cylinders / spark plugs are numbered :
firewall 3 - 6 2 - 5 1 - 4 front

We pulled and replaced spark plugs and distributor cap on a 1985 Nissan Z24 Engine - started once before without cap on but now will not fire again. I need firing settings for distributor and knowlege of...


It started without the distributor cap? That is impossible. I suspect you may have plug wires mixed up. Make sure it is wired as the diagram shows. Also replace the rotor. clay58_39.png

I own a 2007 dodge ram 1500 pickup with the 4.7 liter magnum engine. I am changing the spark plugs but where are they or what do I have to take off to get to them.


Well you have spark plug wires that run to them. It's a 4.7L so you will have 8 of them. They run into the engine block I will post a picture for you.

Okay so make sure when you take them off you know what wire goes where from the distributor cap. Sometimes the book isn't correct if the car has had the electronics redone. Take them out with a spark plug socket and replace but don't tighten too much. Tight but don't crank on it. Also if you're doing the plugs maybe consider doing the wires, cap, rotor while you're at it. If you have questions just ask and good luck!
