Hello, I was wondering if anyone could give me some information about the distibutor cap on a 91 Fleetwood Brougham, 5.0/305. I want to make sure I have the plug wires going from the cylinders to the correct point on the distributor. Thanks, Eric

Is your timing off? One easy way to check just to make sure all the wires are in the right place is to look at the firing order (either on the intake manifold or in the manual) and trace each wire from the distributor to each respective plug. #1 is driver's side front with odd numbers being on the driver's side, even numbers on passenger's side, and going from small to larger each cylinder back.

About halfway through the picture in this article it shows you how to get the timing back to the #1 cylinder at TDC (Top dead center).

If you want some great info about timing, try either

and just type in timing in the little search bar; you should get plenty of resuls in tech articles. Hope this helped a little bit.

Awesome, really helpful information on that site. Didn't know how easy it was to check the timing and set it up correctly. Thanks for the reply.
