Without any other information than that, turn the crankshaft so the timing mark on the harmonic balancer is on the pointer, and remove the dist. cap and look at the position on the rotor. it will either be there, or 180* across. otehrwise you will need to remove a valve cover to watch the rocker arms on the #1 cyl. if you do that, turn the engine over by hand, when the intake rocker opens(the one that lines up with the intake port) then closes, and the timing mark is lines up, you are there.

What does the distributer control


The distributor controls when the spark is required ( ignition timing) by the position of the cam block exciter or points and then distributes that spark to the relevant spark plug lead depending on the firing order.. IT gets it's order from the crank position via the timing mark on the pulley and when you position the pulley at the required number of degrees advanced that is required then the distributer (properly positioned) will deliver a spark to the right spark plug at the right time.

I mixed the distributor cables up,so i need the order to correctly connect


If the wires are still in the distributer, AND, if you have a stock intake manifold, the firing order is on the manifold. If it's a V-8, the number 1, 3, 5, & 7 plugs are on the drivers side of the engine. The number 2, 4, 6, & 8 plugs are on the passenger side. The number 1 plug wire can be located by looking at the distributer from the front of the engine and visually looking between the distributer and the number 1 plug. Visualize the distributer as a clock. The number one position should be located between 4 and 5 o'clock and should have the longest wire of those on that side of the distributer.

If the wires have been pulled from the distributer, then, then, remove the rotor cap, turn the engine over slowly until the rotor is pointing to the number 1 plug. Using the firing order on the intake manifold, starting with number 1, replace the wires going clockwise around the distributer.

How do I set the distributor on a 2000 gmc jimmy? Just changed the intake gaskets, but forgot to mark the position of the rotor.


Get the number one piston up, Take the spark plug out the first one on the drivers side.Rotate the engine until the piston reaches TDC before it starts to decend back. U can use a screw driver to put in the spark plug hole.The rotor must point towards the number one spark plug. your local library will have this infor or autozone

Number 1 cyl not firing no spark


Change the spark plug. If that doesn't work change the HT lead from the plug to the distributer. If that doesn't help then check the distributer cap is not cracked and replace.

I need the possition of #1 on the distributor cap


Remove cap. Remove number one spark plug. Turn key off...have friend manualy turn engine over until you feel air blow out of number one spark plug hole. when you feel this look at rotor in distributer...it will be pointing close to number one. Set your wires on cap to coincide with that. Hope this helps:)
