I need to know the location of the #1 cylinder on the distributor cap of a 337 straight 8 engine on a 31 presdent 4 seasons roadster. Is it the front of the distributor cap or the rear?

Actually, it can be anywhere you like it to be. Wherever the rotor is facing when the #1 cylinder is at TDC on the compression stroke is where the #1 spark plug wire goes. Neal

​EXACTLY!

If it's not where you want it to be, just set the engine to TDC cylinder #1 compression stroke, remove the distributer and reinstall it with the rotor pointing to where you want the #1 wire to be.
