The dist. cap will have at least one terminal with the number 1. You go counter clockwise from there with the firing order you stated above. Thank you for your question and rate the solution if i was able to help you out.

    You may want to invest in a Haynes or Chiltons manual for your vehicle. I found what you're looking for in a Haynes manual for my '98 Silverado.

I replaced my spark plug wires on my 1996 chevy truck. may have crossed one,need a diagram from the spark plugs to the distributer cap.

Since you didn't state whether it is a V6 or V8, I'll give you both.

V6 -4.3Liter
Firing Order is 1-6-5-4-3-2
Distributor rotor turns Clockwise
Number 1 spark plug tower on distributor cap, faces the front of the engine.

->Drivers side, spark plug order in engine, starting from the Front going back:
->Passenger side, spark plug order in engine,
starting from the Front going back:

If it's Electronic, the distributor cap has a Left side, (Drivers side), and a Right side, (Passenger side)
Starting from the Front, going back on the Left side,
Starting from the Front going back on the Right side,

V8-5.0, 5.7, and 7.4Liter
Firing Order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
Distributor rotor turns Clockwise
Number 1 spark plug tower on distributor cap,
faces Front, towards the Drivers side.

Electronic distributor cap has two sides. Drivers, (Left), side and Passenger, (Right), side.
Starting from Front going back on Drivers side,
Starting from Front going back on Passenger side,

Spark plug order in engine, starting from Front going back, Drivers side:
Spark plug order in engine, starting from Front going back, Passenger side:
