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 and installed improperly and then rewired. The new
wiring arrangement would maintain 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 of the current
plug wire locations and orientation of the distributor cap.

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 have a 91 honda civic and need spark plug wire diagram


Fire order
1-3-4-2

Cylinder #1 will be the one closes to the fan belts and so on 1-2-3-4, on the distributor cap there should be a # 1 stamped on it, put cylinder # 1 spark plug wire on that one, install spark plug wire in firing order clockwise on the cap, the cap some time's might even have the firing order on it.

Just changed out my spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. Now the car wont start, what is the problem ?


Recheck the firing order of the spark plugs and wires. you might have connected them wrong. Can't tell you the firing order since I don't know what kind, make, or year of your vehicle.
