You will need to take out the spark plug in #1 cylender standing in front of the truck looking at the motor it will be the first spark plug to your left. shine a flash light down in there and see if you can see the piston if it is at top dead center. or all the way to the top. then pull your distributor cap off on look at the rotor bug it will be pointing at position # 1 ( you can tap the key over to get the piston all the way to the top.) having a friend do this is helpful. now to get to the firing order on the cap it is 1,4,2,5,3,6, clock wise . 4.0 liter and all V6 motors the cylinder arragment is
3 6
2 5
1 4 standing in the front looking at motor

Firing order on a 305 on the cap. Got the wires all messed up...


This method is good for the firing order on all chevy small block v8 engines from 265 cubic inches to 400 cubic inches. This would include 265, 283, 305, 327, 350, 400 cu. in. chevy small block v8 engines.

Let's cover some safety concerns first. If you try to troubleshoot a mixed up firing order with the engine running, you could be in for a serious shock,.. literally. You can do it, with certain precautions, but you really don't need to check the firing order with the engine running. You definitely don't want to try checking the firing order if you are wearing any kind of pacemaker or sensitive electromechanical prosthesis. The voltage coming out of the ignition coil is in the thousands. Common sense dictates that you wouldn't stick a knife in an electrical outlet, so you wouldn't want to take chances with being shocked by the electrical discharge from your classic chevy's ignition coil either. See the diagram:


5d6424a.png

The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.

On classic chevy small block engines that use ignition breaker points instead of electronic ignitions, the number one cylinder is the one immediately clockwise of the small metal sash cover on the distributor cap. The firing order starts here. There is no sash cover on the distributor cap for GM HEI electronic ignitions, and the firing order is the same, but starting at the 5:30 position.
The firing order makes sense if you know how the cylinders are numbered. The number one cylinder is the front most on the drivers side and 2 being the front most on the passenger side. From front to back, the cylinders are odd numbered on the drivers side, and even numbered on the passenger side.

Hope helps (remmeber rated this).

I don't know your engine size, but the link below is a picture of the GM small block firing order with distributor.
The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired.

HOW T POSITION THE DISTRIBUTOR??


It's hard to explain using text but I'll try. #1, you have to pull the #1 spark plug, have someone crank the engine while you have your thumb or finger over the spark plug hole, you'll want to feel the piston push pressure out and against your finger, now take note, this could either be the compression stroke which you need or it could be the exhaust stroke. When this is done, place the distributor in and try to line up the rotor with the number #1 spot/indicator on the distributor cap. If it doesn't run right or start easily, you placed it in the Exhaust sequence not the compression. Hope this helps.
