I cannot be of much help here as never seen one but what i would do in this case to take a rocker cover off and follow the valves ,so inlet valve closes and exahust is coming around to open then cylinder is firing so if you know the number of the cylinder you fit that lead into position rotor arm is pointing at and then follow that lead with the firing order starting from that number .

SOURCE: Wiring order

Since your distributer cap spins in a clockwise motion, just make sure you start with 1 then 4, then in the full order to make sure the sequence is correct.

SOURCE: how to start the firing order on the distri butator cap

Turn the #1 cylinder to top dead center, on the compression stroke. Remove the cap and see where the rotor button is pointed. This is the #1 cylinder plug wire position. Start from here, and clockwise run 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2.

I mixed the distributor cables up,so i need the order to correctly connect


If the wires are still in the distributer, AND, if you have a stock intake manifold, the firing order is on the manifold. If it's a V-8, the number 1, 3, 5, & 7 plugs are on the drivers side of the engine. The number 2, 4, 6, & 8 plugs are on the passenger side. The number 1 plug wire can be located by looking at the distributer from the front of the engine and visually looking between the distributer and the number 1 plug. Visualize the distributer as a clock. The number one position should be located between 4 and 5 o'clock and should have the longest wire of those on that side of the distributer.

If the wires have been pulled from the distributer, then, then, remove the rotor cap, turn the engine over slowly until the rotor is pointing to the number 1 plug. Using the firing order on the intake manifold, starting with number 1, replace the wires going clockwise around the distributer.

Hi, my 2.5liter 86 porsche 944 nds the plugs to the distributer properly arranged. my brother messed them up.


the firing order is 1-3-4-2, it has to be in the 1-3-4-2 order starting at some point. I don't remember exactly if this one has it, but nearly all distributer caps have a 1 on the cap so you know where to start. I took magic marker and labeled each cylinder for the cap. The spark plug boots cover it up. Looking at the cap while standing in front of the bumper it is: 4 2 3 1 hope this helps

I need to know what the order on the distributor cap in for the plugs are I know the firing order I just go the last two wires mixed up on the drivers side so I know it's 1-3-5 but where are the locations...


You need to determin which direction the rotor button turns when the engine is running. Take the cap off and get someone to bump the starter . Watch the rotor. If it turns counter clockwise the fireing order will follow its order counter clockwise on the distributer .In other words # 1 wire on the distributer goes to # 1 spark plug. Then the next wire counting counterclockwise goes to # 3 plug . Follow the firing around the distributer for all the wires. counter clockwise is the oppisit to the rotation of the hands on a clock .

We replaced the distributor cap and rotor on our Dodge Ram Van 1500, but one wire popped off as we were working and we aren't sure they are in the right order anymore. How do we find a diagram to help us...


the firing order is usually stamped on the engine itself. Take off the distributer cap and turn the ignition to see which direction the rotor is turning.

The distributer cap has the number 1 plug marked . After finding the firing order, place the wires 1 where the cap is marked then in the direction the rotor is turning (ie:clockwise or couterclockwise). Keep looking . Most every motor I have seen has the firing order maked right on the engine.Or the owners manual ?

I have a 1990 dodge dakota. I need to know where #1 is on the distributer cap. I know the firing orders , though i have no markings on the cap as to where #1 starts.


You can rotate the engine until #1 piston is at top dead center when it has the rotor on the distributer will point at the #1 on the cap.
