    4.1 wiring from distributor to plugs HELP ASAP

    can anybody quickly give me a drawing description or whatever of where each wire goes off from the distributor and to the spark plug it corresponds with. i was being careful changing them and some how i still managed to confuse myself as to the order they went in and where they plug onto the distributor cap. its for an 83 eldo if it matters.

    thanks to anybody who can help me, im desperate.

    Hey Slash, do you have the 4.1 V-8 or 4.1 V-6? I've got the wiring diagram for the V-8 -- if it is the V-8 I'll go get my manual.

    This wiring configuration is good for the 4.1 V-8 (250 cid) & the 4.5 V-8 (273 cid).
    Engine firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. Distributor rotation: counterclockwise. Looking at the engine from the front, the left bank from front to back is 2-4-6-8 and the right bank from front to back is 1-3-5-7. Hope this helps you!:d

    thanks for the reply, but i already found the answer myself. it only took a call to a mechanic .

    my new distributor cap/rotor and ignition cables are working excellently.
