I need to know the firing order off of the top of the distributor cap for a 1/2 ton dodge with a 318. I think the firing order of the cylinders is 18346572 correct? If not please correct me if I am wrong. Now the question is where is number one on the distributor cap? In the front or back? I am really confused, it ran fine when I bought it from the guy but I think he might have screwed with the wires so I want to make sure it is all correct before I probe deeper into the engine.
1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 is right / the best way to find #1 is pull all the plugs and hold yer finger over the #1 plug hole and have somebody turn it over a little at a time and when the compression just starts to blow yer finger off[not really] the rotor should be close to #1 on the cap / to get it perfect check the timing marks and when they line up thats #1/ good luck
