fring order for 383 mopar

What way do you start doing around the disturbuter cap with the firing order???? I had it started but it back fire out of right exhaust. I thought I might have a wire cross. After moving wires around now it won't start???? I took the valve covers off the see if a vlave got stuck and everything is moving. The car ran a yr ago before I change carb and intake and now just getting back working on it. any help or info will help alot, thanks

ok it says MOPAR in the title, skip that.

Did you pre load the valves right? They may be moving but are they set correctly?

Big Chrysler, 383 Engine
Firing Order: 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2

Cylinder Numbering Distributor Rotation:
Facing the front of engine: (Right-side front) 1,3,5,7
(Left side: 2,4,6,8

******Rotor Under Cap Spins: Counter Clockwise!!!!!

Nickhotrod33, be sure that the #1 cyl is on the compression stroke at TDC (top dead center). If so, the damper timing mark should be right around zero, give-or-take. You'll notice where the rotor is pointing which should be your #1 firing cyl. Start in a COUNTER CLOCKWISE manner numbering the cylinders off. Double check yourself.

I'm not an expert machanic and don't claim to be, but that should steer you in the right direction.
