    Just finished swapping in a 4blt 350 into my 85 K5... It turns over and the gauges are working.. Can't get it to start though.. When I put the HEI distributor on, I don't think I wired it right.. The cap isn't marked for the wiring/firing order.... So I have no way of knowing which wires go where on the cap. My "chiltons" only confused me more.. Anybody out there want to give me a short lesson?

    The distributor rotates clockwise and the firing order is 18436572. The wires go in that order. The #1 wire usually goes to the very front, slightly passenger side on the distributor but that depends on how you have the distributor dropped in there.
