Question about 1989 Chevrolet C1500
Viewed from above, front of vehicle at the bottom, cylinder locations are:
The distributor rotation is clockwise.
To find Top dead center (for wire to cylinder #1 on distributor), look for and line up the timing marks on the crankshaft (front of the engine).
Or, pull the #1 spark plug, stuff the hole with a cork or a rag. Slowly crank the engine until the cork pops out. Pull the distributor off. The rotor is pointing where the plug for cylinder #1 should go. The rest of the wires go in the firing order clockwise.
Firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
That about covers it.
Remember: Good things come to those who rate. How about a nice FixYa?

Have replaced the fuel pump the distributer, cap and rotor, and coil. Under a load the engine back fires. This is the same as before the replacement parts were installed. Any suggestions????
