Question about Chevrolet Chevy
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.

On a v-8 chevy, remove distributor cap , pull out spark plug on #1 CYLINDER (LOOKING AT MOTOR FIRST PLUG ON YOUR RIGHT,)have a friend stick finger in hole(good friend) bump start engine (short quick turns of key) until pressure pushes his or her finger out. look at distributor see where rotor button put a mark on motor with piece of tape where rotor is pointing to install cap and your number 1 spark plug will hook up on cap closest to tape, install spark plug and hook other end of wire to that plug. now starting clock wise the next wire will be #8 still looking at motor plug at far left side of motor near back of motor.next will be #4 first plug on left side #3 second plug on right side #6 third plug back on left side, #5 third plug right side. #7 last plug on right side #2 first plug on left side.
