firing prblem

im trying to find the firing order of a 4.3L in 88 gmc s15 TBI (same as the s10) and what order they are on the motor, where each cylinder is. i think right front is 1 left front is 2 middle right 3 iddle left 4 rear right 5 rear left is 6. but what is the firing order and where is 1 on the distributor cap go


  1. same as a small block Chevy excluding the 7th and 8th cylinders is how I remember it. 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. #1 cylinder is on the drivers front side of engine. odds on drivers side, evens on passenger side.

  2. Call any auto parts store and tell them what you have and what you need and they will tell you . I know , I have had to do it before as well .
