Thr pontiac firing order is the same as GM 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 and the plug wires should be in a clockwise order. You can't get fire??? Remember the right side of the engine is 1-3-5-7 and the left is 2-4-6-8 starting from the front, you probably know everything but just thoughts. Do the plugs have fire to them? will it even fire?

As dk stated, rotor rotation is counter-clockwise and 1,3,5, and 7 are on the left side of the engine not the right. In the automotive industry the drivers side is the left side and the passenger side is considered the right.

I'm thinking of standing in front of the engine and working on it, right-1357 left-2468, I guess I'm wrong...

It's the most common mistake there is. Don't feel bad, I've worked with mechanics in shops who've screwed that up. Ohh the fun we have with FWD cars.
