It's easy to have that problem if someone else installed the distributor incorrectly. In relaity, any one of the cap towers can be used as #1. Turn the engine 'till the timing mark on the front balancer aligns with "0" on the timing scale. With the valve covers on, you can't tell if you are 180 out of phase or at TDC though but if the rotor points towards the firewall, chances are you are 180 off. (In that case, turn the pulley one more turn back to "0" and see where the rotor points. Wherever it is, that is the #1 wire position. Clockwise on the cap the order is 18436572 The cylinders are (front to back) 1357 on the drivers side and 2468 on the passenger side. If you have not turned the distributor, the engine timing should be good. If not, turn the distributor counter clockwise to advance. Use a timing light to get it perfect.

What is the best spark plug to use for my 1987 CHEVY R10 silverado it has a 5.7 350 with 80,000 miles on it


Ask your parts person for OE, original equipment. These plugs were made for your engine size and year. I don't recommend anything but OE.

I need to know where the plug wires go.from spark plug to distibuter cap on a 1986 4.1 coupe deville(cad.)


FIRING ORDERS NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement. If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired. Fig. 1: GM (Cadillac) 250 (4.1L) V8 GM (Cadillac) 273 (4.5L) V8 Engine firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor rotation: counterclockwise 85872009.gif Fig. 2: GM (Oldsmobile) 307 (5.0L) V8 GM (Oldsmobile) 350 (5.7L) V8 w/EFI Engine firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor rotation: counterclockwise 85872009.gif Fig. 3: GM (Buick) 252 (4.1L) V6 Engine firing order: 1-6-5-4-3-2 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872010.gif Fig. 4: GM (Cadillac) 368, 425, 472, 500 V8 Engine firing order: 1-5-6-3-4-2-7-8 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872011.gif Fig. 5: GM (Cadillac) 429 V8 Engine firing order: 1-8-7-2-6-5-4-3 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872012.gif prev.gif next.gif
