sory for the jumbled numbers they should be in a circular pattern like the cap but it didnt work
jus think of #1 at 8 o'clock like on a watch for HEI and at 10 o'clock for points

auto shop 101, okay i'll spend a minute here. first, leave your distributor in the hole. second, take out the number one plug. That would be the one firstest forward, ie the front one on the drivers side. have someone crank the motor while you hold your finger over the hole-slowly, a little bit atta time. when your finger gets blown off the hole you should be near tdc-top dead center compression stroke for #1 cylinder. where ever your rotor is pointing is where you put your number one plug wire at. moving clockwise around the cap you add 8436572. 2468 are on the passenger side on a chebby and 1357 are on the drivers side, now, don't play with your car anymore! <img src="graemlins/boxing.gif" border="0" alt="[boxing]" />

Firing order

[color=yellow]Doc Here

Maybe the photo will help a bit on how it should be.

This is off my Vette,

The battery / Tach hook up side is to the driver's side.

The plug wire with the black tape on it is #1
(2 Nd clockwise from the Battery / Tach hook~up)

The Fire order is: Going clockwise from #1 ~
1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2

The Cylinders on the driver's side front to rear are:
1-3-5-7
The Cylinders on the passenger's Side front to rear:
2-4-6-8

Number 1 on mine is about 5 o'clock... (HEI's) & about 7 o'clock for point type ignition.

Hope this helps!
Doc
