  • distributor ?

    this might sound really stupid but i looked up the firing order in my dhop manual: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. i am not a car mech but wouldn't that same order be on the distributor starting from one then in order clockwise? i was doing some troubleshooting and went with my theory and thought my 5 and 2 wires were swapped. so i changed them and my engine was misfiring like crazy. i also lined up my vibe damper at the IGN mark and the rotor was pointion right at the #1 terminal on the cap? am i way off in the clouds or what?

      I just posted a chart that may be of help to anyone with distributor cap and wiring issues. Go to the General Discussion forum, and click on the topic 'Distributor Cap Orientation'.
