Looking at the distrubitor from above, you'll see there are 8 points for the plug wires. On the right side you'll see a box where your power, tach, etc.. wires are. Going clockwise, it's the second one from that box. so from the box, the order will be, 2, 1, 8, 4, 3, 6, 5, 7. Agian, that is CLOCKWISE from the input for the coil.

How to replace the distributor and line it up the correct way


With ignition OFF, remove the dist cap , do not remove HT leads from cap or plugs just move to one side ,turn the crankshaft with a spanner on the crank pulley drive nut until the rotor arm is pointing directly towards the front of the vehicle, mark the position of the rotor on the distributor body with a dab of paint and also mark the position of the body on the engine block infront of the distrbutor,remove the distributor , i believe it's just 2 screws that clamp it in place ,transfer the mark from old dist to the new dist and aling the rotor to this mark, then fit the new dist to engine and aligne the marks from the new dist to the mark on the engine block and tighten down , refit the dist cap , to get an exact distributor timing you should now use a timing light to check the timing marks line up , if they are slightly out just very slowly turn the distributer until the marks are aligned , hope this is of help

How to Reinstall a Distributor if Crankshaft Moved.


Applys to all Distributor Engines.

Follow this easy instruccions if you want to reinstall a distributor on a vehicle where the crankshaft was moved from the position it was when the distributor was removed.

Remove #1 spark plug

Place your finger over the spark plug hole while turning the engine with a wrench on the pulley bolt at the front of the engine.

When you feel compression continue turning the crankshaft slowly until the timing mark on the vibration damper is aligned with the "0" on the engine timing indicator.

Position the disttributor rotor between the number 1 & 8 (for 8 Cil.) 1 & 6 (for 6 Cil.) or 1 & 4 (for 4 Cil.) spark plug terminals on the cap.

Lower Dist. into engine. To set the gear on the bottom of the distribuitor, you may need to turn the rotor a little bit. If the distributor does not drop down flush against the block is because the distributor shaft has not mated the oil pump shaft, if this happens, place a large socket w/braker bar on the crankshaft bolt and turn the engine over in the normal direction of rotation until the two shafts engage properly and the distributor sits flush against block.

With the base of the distributor properly seated, turn dist. housing to align the marks you made in dist. base and engine block. (you did make this marks before removal right? : )

Place the hold down clamp and install the hold down bolt not too tight.
Install dist. cap an reconect electrical plugs, spark plug wires, etc.

Check ignition timing and when set, tighten dist. hold down bolt.

THERE IS ONLY ONE FIRING ORDER FOR THIS IT HAS BEEN THE SAME SINCE 1960??? 18436572 WITH NO1 IF YOU ARE STANDING STRAIGHT IN FRONT OF THE ENGINE YOUR HEI DIST SHOULD HAVE 2 PRONGS STRAIGHT ACCROSS FACING YOU IF IT IS NOT YOU MUST PULL THE DIST, ROTATE THE ENGINE AROUND TO COMPRESSION STROKE, VERIFY THIS BY THE POINTER ON THE TIMING COVER SET IT TO 0 WITH THE PISTON IN NO1 CYLINDER UP IF NO 1 PISTON IS NOT UP FULLY EXTENDED IN THE SPARK PLUG HOLE YOU ARE NOT AT NO 1
IF THE PISTON IS FULLY EXTENDED AND YOU HEARD A AIR SOUND THEN YOU ARE RIGHT, PLACE THE DIST BACK IN TURN THE ROTOR 1 TO 2 NOTCHES BACK TO THE RIGHT AND HAVE SOME ONE CRANK THE ENGINE IN SPURTS, IT SHOULD DROP IN, THEN REPEAT THE PROCESS TO VERIFY YOU ARE ACTUALLY ON NO1 THEN BEGIN THE WIRING

Installed new distibutor now cant get the truck to start. Where do you set the rotor. I tried #1 , #6, #4 will not start.


the best way is to take out #1 spark plug. put a straw or similar on top of piston. turn engine by front damper pulley on nut. when the piston gets to the very top and just starts to go down, this is #1 position. but it can be off 180 degrees also. if piston is all the way up the rotor button should be pointing to #1 post in cap. then it should start, and just turn distributor to set the timing ( where engine runs best ). tighten down clamp on dist. then thats it! dont forget to put plug back in engine, good-day! if you turned engine both ways and it still is off, get the engine on #1 and pull dist. out and set it to #1. by hand.

Wiring an hei distributor


You shouldn't need a spark box because thee coil is located in the dist. cap. You need to run a 12v switched power source to the side of the dist. cap that is marked dist. if it isn't maked it is the term. that is on the front right of the conector pad. the one on the left is for hooking up a tach.

Set timming


You will need a timing light for Hi energy ignition as well as standard socket set or wrenches. 1. get the engine up to operating temp. 2 shut off engine connect the timing light to the number one[1] spark plug wire at the spark plug end connect battery connectors. 3 start engine and note location of pointer on the mark tab on the timing cover. 4 shut off engine loosen the hold down clamp on the distributor turn the bolt no more than one full turn[snug is better than loose here] then note the position of the dist. cap. Move the dist. to make sure it moves freely replace back to the starting position and remove and plug the vaccum line to the dist. 5 start engine and set timing to the desired spec. 6 shut off engine tighten dist. clamp bolt 7 start engine check timing one more time to see if still there at desired setting. 8 shut off engine dis-connect all tools and light

Need wireing diagram to change 72 nova over to hei distributor


Hey , just take the positive wire from the coil you are removing and feed it to the + terminal on the HEI dist. cap.the other terminal under there is for your tachometer. If you are mounting a master kill switch in the bumper for drag racing- attatch the kill wire to the tach terminal also.
Thats it you just plug the three wire pigtail from the dist. base(pickup) to the cap and you are off.
Remember firing order is 18436572 in a clockwise direction. to find #1 remove #1 plug and have someone"bump" the engine over while holding your finger over the hole-carefull. then line up the slotted mark on the crank pulley with the big notch on the timing indicator. Good luck
