OK I need help I need to know why I would be getting backfire through my carb on my Chevy 350 and I can't figure out why cause my timing is dead on and I also put a different carb on and does the same

on v8 engine , back firing is contributed to 2 plug wires crossed
check the firing order of the leads and check it with the engine make
it could be a crack between pins in the distributor cap or a carbon track between pins
use HT lead separators as ht leads touching each other will cross fire to a plug that has no or little compression

What is the order of spark plug cables to the distributor for mazda 323 2001

On the distributor cap on each HT Lead connection there is a number presenting the spark plug connection with the cap. if the distributor cap has only the number "1" and not on the other hole for the HT lead connection then you fit the spark plug one lead and following the clockwise rotation fit the other HT leads. 1 for first spark plug,2-for second spark plug etc. First spark plug is fro the front of timing belt side. Good Luck!

Mixed up ht leads what order do they go in.

You did not specify which engine your Vitara has, the 4 or 6 cylinder, so here are both layouts. For front of vehicle, read ' side of engine where pulleys are'. If your distributor layout is different, locate the position of #1 wire with the engine at TDC compression and follow the firing order around the cap in a clockwise direction:-

I cant remember where my leeds go on my distributor cap

how many cylinders? for 4 the firing order is 1342 for example--if you have 6 or 8 lookit up on the net and you will find the firing order and then just count round the distibutor and hook up accordingly--modern cars don't have this issue--no distributor.
