The carb on my 350 chevey engaine is one i never seen it got wires running to the jets it started to pop and catch fire what can i do


Rick may have placed his question in the wrong category but I'll give it a shot... First, Rick, I'm going to have to presume the 'carb' is actually a throttle body and the wires are going to the injector spray nozzles on the top of the 'carb' throttle body.
If your engine is backfiring through the throttle body it can mean one of three things,
!.) First if it runs, or even won't run, double check the spark plug wires to make sure #1 wire goes to the #1 cylinder and the rest are to the correct cylinders too. Just two wires crossed will backfire through the intake with flames. For referencing which is where, The #1 cylinder on 350 small block Chevy is the forward most cylinder on the drivers side of the engine. The cylinder behind #1 is the #3 cylinder the #5 and #7 on the drivers side. The #2 cylinder is the forward most cylinder on the passenger side with #4 behind it then #6 and #8 in the rear. The firing order for all Chevy V-8's is as follows; 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. Looking at the engine from the front of the car the #1 cylinder tower on the distributor cap is usually at the 5 o'clock position or pretty close to it. The distributor rotates in a clockwise direction.
2.) The second condition could easily be the distributor timing is off. If you haven't turned the distributor any then that isn't the problem. If it runs double check the ignition timing for accuracy.It should read between 8 - 12 degrees advanced.
3.) Lastly, and this may be difficult to swallow if it's true but here goes. You could have either a sticking intake valve or a flat cam lobe on one of your cylinders. To check this pull the wire off the distributor cap and put it back on one by one to see if the engine runs differently with it off. If no change if found that is your failing cylinder to investigate. By that I mean to check the compression reading on that cylinder.

I need firing order for my gmc sierra 1997. I need to change an 02 censor on the side of the # 1 cylinder. 350 rear wheel


You may not have thought of this but, your ignition system uses a distributor. The cap is labeled with the cylinder number that the wires go to. Look for number one and follow it to the number one spark plug. You just identified bank 1. Bank 2 will be the other side of the engine.

1997 chevy truck 350 v8 only has spark on #1,2,7,8 cylinders.


Is there power to the (+) side of the coils of the non functioning cylinders? If you swap coils around do they work (producr spark) on other cylinders (1,2,7,8) If the answer is yes you may have a defective control module.

Change plugs and wire and engine will not acclerate. This is a built 350 short block chevy with pro charger.


350 Chevy engine in what? 1990 Corvette? Who built it, did you?

Sounds as though you have plug wires wrong.
Firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2

Distributor Ignition System:
Distributor rotates Clockwise. (Rotor)
Find Number 1 tower on distributor cap, go Clockwise with Firing Order.

Distributorless Ignition System:
VIEWING the engine from the Front of the car.

Spark plug wire connections along the back, starting from Left side going to Right side;
2-3-7-4

Spark plug wire connection towards the Front of the engine;
6-1-5-8

(To guess I would say you have 5 and 7 wires switched)

Left side cylinder order is 1-3-5-7, going from front to back.
Drivers side is Left side.
Right side cylinder order is 2-4-6-8, going from front to back.

my 91 chevy k2500 dies while driving because it keeps blowing the fusible link that carries battery power to the fuse box on the left side of the dash. Problem started a while ago when the truck suddenly died while driving down the road. Still had headlights and dash lights but nothing else. Truck wouldn't even crank over, no radio, heater etc. After troubleshooting, I ended up finding a fusible link that looked to have been repaired at one point. The wire was broken inside the insulation and there a was a **** about 1/2" long in the insulation (small gauge wire). I cut that wire out and used a jumper wire from there to the power block on the firewall to see if that would give me power at the main engine harness connector (which I was lacking before). It did. So I wired in a fuse with some 12 gauge wire using a 15A fuse (wasn't exactly sure what size wire to use and what the fusible link was suppose to be rated since it had been repaired) and hooked it to the power block on the firewall where the other fusible links are. That solved the problem of not having power to anything on the fuse panel on the dash. Drove the truck a few miles and it died again blowing the same fuse. I replaced it and only got about a mile before it did it again. Tried again and got about a 1/4 mile. One more time and only got about 50 yards. Not sure what is causing it. From what I can tell, that fusible link is providing power from the battery through the terminal block on the firewall and from there to a single pin on the main engine harness connector via fusible link to the interior. I have a diagram that shows that power going to the ignition switch and both the "stop/haz" and "acc/batt" fuses. Seems like there is something grounding out or something is breaking down under a load or when getting hot... Please help
