Firing order for 1982 351w in f150 truck

If it's a California truck it's a good chance the ignition is EEC-III (brown grommet on ignition module.)

The EEC-III distributor rotor fires alternately from both sides of the distributor rotor.

The the spark plug wires for an EEC-III distributor will be wired counter clock-wise in a different order.

I have 1982 ford f150 with a 351windsor in it, the stock venturi 2bbl carb is leaking, what type of carb would fit the manifold without changing it? Also is the distributor supposed to be able to turn when...

Edelbrock and Carter both make 2 bbl. carbs for 351W. that will fit stock intake.
Distributor should not turn on it's own. Only with the engine running

I have a 1996 f 250 has a 460 engine in it,i replaced the distributor how do i reset timing on it

You should have marked the distributor prior to removal, but if not , no problem. First make sure the shaft to the oil pump is in place. Look down the hole that the distributor came out of. Hopefully is is still in the top of the oil pump. Next remove the spark plug from the number one cylinder so you can verify when it is at top dead center. Rotate the engine(with the distributor out still) until you come up to top dead center. Make sure it is on the compression stroke and not the exhaust stroke. The distributor cap will only fit on the distributor one way. Find the number 1 plug wire to the cap and set the cap on the distributor so you have an idea where the rotor should be pointing (To the number 1 plug wire with the rotor). As you lower the distributor in to the hole you will need to turn the rotor to line up with the gear at the end of the camshaft gently and also with the oil pump shaft. Sound complicated , but it's not really. When the distributor is all the way down in it's hole look at the top of the distributor and it should be pointing to the number 1 plug wire. You may need to pull it back up just enough to advance a tooth or ****** it a tooth on the camshaft gear. It needs to be as close as possible, so you can set your base and get it started and use a timing light to get it set correctly to the correct degree. Good luck. It's an easy process. Just take your time and check your work as you proceed. Make sure the distributor is all the way in to its hole so you can place the retaining bolt on the distributor housing to hold your timing in place. If you can not get it flush you do not have the distributor seated properly.

Engines:{300, 302, 351w}, {400, 351m, 460}, {6.9L, 7.3L IDI}, {352, 360, 390, ect.}

How would oil get into the distributor?

In the olden days cars had distributors which were driven by a gear
on the end of a shaft which ran off threads on the end of the camshaft.
There would be an O Ring or other seal to keep oil from being drawn up the shaft into the distributor. So if your car has a distributor, no doubt there is a shaft coming out of the bottom of it going into the engine and somewhere in there a gear on the end of that shaft is to be turned by a matching gear on the camshaft or crankshaft. There is some type of seal to keep engine stuff inside the engine and non engine stuff outside. WARNING, if you loosen the hold down bolt or flange and pull the distributor out you will most likely ruin the timing and the car will not run again until someone who knows what they are doing puts it back in correctly.

Make sure the tensioner is tight to the specifications and in propper place.
You may need to Replace Your Timing Belt if you don't fix it putting it in tension.
Timing belt slipping off can badly damage valves, causing a damage that requires an expensive repair, do not circulate if timing belt is not OK, see :Cost estimate for valve job after timing belt slip
