Hopefully you haven`t pulled all the wire off at once.change the wires one at a time matching up the length of the old wire with the length of the new one.if you pulled them off all at once then you can go to a shop and see if they will show you the location on the cap or print out the position of the wires on the cap and distributor rotation.

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 took of*** my spark plug wires working on my small block 350 pickup and I don't remember the the firing order to put the new wires back on. Is there a diagram anywhere or is it even that difficult to...


Next time number each lead before you remove it and no. the dissy cap as well

The firing order, which should be cast into the intake manifold, for the chevy small block V8 is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. The firing order is the numerical sequence in which the spark plugs are fired. The insertion position of each spark plug wire around the circumference of the distributor cap can be found according to a clock face. The insertion sequence determines the firing order. The firing order is followed clockwise around the distributor cap starting from the 6:30 position with the 6:30 position being the number one cylinder spark plug wire.
On classic chevy small block engines that use ignition breaker points instead of electronic ignitions, the number one cylinder is the one immediately clockwise of the small metal sash cover on the distributor cap. The firing order starts here. There is no sash cover on the distributor cap for GM HEI electronic ignitions, and the firing order is the same, but starting at the 5:30 position.
The firing order makes sense if you know how the cylinders are numbered. The number one cylinder is the front most on the drivers side and 2 being the front most on the passenger side. From front to back, the cylinders are odd numbered on the drivers side, and even numbered on the passenger side.
See the diagram; Click to open a printable larger image in a new window. The firing order starts with the number one cylinder. We would connect the number one spark plug wire to the distributor cap terminal in the 6:30 position. distributor.pngSince the next cylinder in the firing order is 8 (passenger side rear), we connect the number 8 spark plug wire to the next distributor cap terminal (approximately 7:30 position) in the clockwise direction from number one. You need to be sure you continue the firing order in the clockwise direction around the chevy small block distributor cap from the last installed spark plug wire. Setting the rest of the firing order is just a matter of repetition. Be sure to count the spark plugs from front to back on each side of the motor to identify the correct cylinder number in the firing order.

I would pull the plugs and let the gas into the cylinders to dry out , you may have a hydrolock engine after putting so much gas into it , recheck the firing order to be sure is OK ususlly when you see a carb backfiring and smoking the firing order is not right

Put distributor cap on blazer fire came out of engine


If when you changed the distributor cap you misplaced the wires in the incorrect order you could have caused a misfire. When looking at the cap the correct firing order for a 4.3 liter is 165432 going clockwise. Also if you loosened the distributor hold down bolt and turned the distributor even slightly you could cause a misfire.

Need help replacing spark plug wires replaced distributor cap & didn't mark to replace wires on new cap


you have to re-time it on the cap. look at the cap it should show a 1. You will need the firing order which should be 18436572, you can call your local auto parts to verify. start at plug one, which is on the right front when facing the windshield, put on #1 where the 1 is on the cap and go around clockwise adding like the firing order says until you have them all back on the cap. 8 should be your second wire to put on. It will be on the left closest to the windshield. On and on. secure cap Right side odd 1,3,5,7 Left even 2,4,6,8 front to back in that order. Hope it helps
