Hi!!

Align the NEW Dist Cap on top of the OLD one to check the instalation position, once you have it right, remove one cable from the old one and replace on the same position on the new one. repeat procedure until all the wires are in the new cap. This way you will not have to worry about messing up the firing order.

Good Luck!!! Don't forget to rate this post!!!

Hi, do you have the smog diagram for a 1973-440 motorhome.? thank you


73 was an awful year for smog devices.
You could just look at any 1973 Dodge diagram, because a motorhome is no different.
But my advice is to take all smog stuff off. It did not work well in 73, and harms engine. You don't have to test anyway.

I have a 1990 dodge dakota. I need to know where #1 is on the distributer cap. I know the firing orders , though i have no markings on the cap as to where #1 starts.


You can rotate the engine until #1 piston is at top dead center when it has the rotor on the distributer will point at the #1 on the cap.
