Question about Pontiac Parisienne
They should go clockwise.
Posted on Nov 07, 2010
Hi. it is clockwise.the plug wire number 1 at the front of cap. not at the back at the firewall.standing in front of the engine your number 1 cylinder will be on your right or the driver side. take out no 1 plug and turn the engine by handwith a 9/16 socket and ratchet on the pulley bolts till you get top dead centre. your timing mark on the damper will line up with your indicator on the timing cover move the damper and line up the damper mark with the tab od the timing cover line it up at zero degrees.have your distributor cap off and see where the rotor is pointing. the top of the rotor that strikes the button in your distributor cap should be facing toward the front of the engine. not the striker that makes contact inside the cap. you can now check to see if everything is lined up then you can go ahead and do the wiring. if you are out or if the distributor was taken out and not lined up properly when put back in then pull it out and reline it to number1 cylinder. then go ahead and do your wiring.it should fire up. hope this helps.

I'm not sure either, but to find out simply remove the distributor cap and turn the engine by hand and watch the rotor button. See which way it goes. To be sure that the engine is set up properly, remove the driver's side valve cover and turn the engine over until you see the intake valve open and close. As it closes the exhaust valve should start to open. This is Top Dead Center. Place your #1 spark plug wire on the terminal that lines up with the position of the rotor button and wire the rest from there. Hope this helps.
