Question about 1987 Jeep Wrangler
Hey there janandshane,
I've got a 91 Wrangler, lots of fun. Here's your info.
Viewed from above, front of vehicle on the right side, cylinder locations are:
6 5 4 3 2 1 for a six cylinder and 4 3 2 1 for a four Cylinder
The firing order is:
1 5 3 6 2 4 for the six and 1 3 4 2 for the four.
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.
That about covers it.
Remember: Good things come to those who rate. How about a nice FixYa?
