    Okay, what happened was my friend switched out my distributor for me the other day and pulled all the plug wires off and never reattached them, so now I don't know where the plugs go on the distributor. I know the order on the distributor goes 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, but I'm not sure which electrode is #1. Any help would be appreciated.

    Number one is most likely the one pointing towards the no.1 cylinder, and the firing order goes clockwise at 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2,

    I believe I always put the #1 wire on at the 5 o'clock position on the dist. cap, although I don't think it really matters as long as you put the wires on in the appropriate order....

    If you are standing in front of the truck, there will be two holes on the front half of the distributor,#1 will be the one on your right. The order on the distributor going clockwise from #1 is 18436572
