Question From dougc426 on 1972 Cadillac eldorado

I bought this car NOT running,Carb was wroung one so i got the correct one for it.Hooked up all vacuum lines,new plugs,wires,cap,rotor,uni-points,oil&filter.Carb was dyno-tested and run on a motor,The guy that rebuilds them has done carbs for me before all have been good.So get everything hooked up and i have power to coil but no spark out of the coil going to the cap,not many wires to hook up and i have a 1972 cadillac shop manual to help out.Now what do i look for to get this car running?...Help please

Response From Hammer Time

Check for power at the red lead coming into the distributor.

Response From dougc426

I did,Power to coil,then when i turn the car over,I have spark to negitive side but still no spark to distributor,I put new coil in too.also checked out distributor wire tested out good???

Response From Hammer Time

How did you determine that you have spark to negative side of the coil? Isn't this HEI with internal coil?

Response From dougc426

No its not a HEI,I dont think they came out till 1973??/...Thanks

Response From Hammer Time

So it has points?

Response From dougc426

yes it does

Response From Hammer Time

You should be getting a pulsing ground signal on the - side of the coil when cranking. If none found, change the points and condenser.

Response From dougc426

Ok,will do.the points are new but i know that dont mean squat..Thanks

Response From dougc426

new points same results,still no spark from coil????

Response From Hammer Time

Do you have pulse on the negative side when cranking?

Response From dougc426

looked to be steady no pulse...!!!!

Response From Hammer Time

Then you still have a problem in the points or distributor. That is what supplies the pulsing ground to fire the coil. Make sure the wire isn't shorted inside anywhere.

Response From re-tired

YOU said you put in a set of uni points . make sure you mounted the wire to them correctly .Ive seen them grounded by mistake . also what did you gap points to . Have you tried getting a dwell meter to read ?

Response From dougc426

also how can you ground them(the points) by mistake mistake??????

Response From re-tired

The post has insulating washers on it .Is is possible but rare to get the wire behind the washers vs between them which will ground it. What about the point setting. Glad to help you TROLL for an answer.

Response From Hammer Time

The wire is supposed to be making contact with the swinging arm and the related spring only. If it makes contact with the frame that is screwed down, it is shorted out. Also make sure your engine is grounded to the battery and frame.

Response From Double J

Saw a lot of guys install the wire in the wrong spot....

One thought i had too is ...had many uniset points come out of the box and not start the car.
Not just Delco Remy but others as well..

Assuming they're installed correctly as the others have mentioned..take an allen wrench,open the distributor cap window and while someone cranks the engine,try backing off on the points to see if it hits/starts.Had to to this many times,if so,then set the dwell with a dwell meter..
A lot of guys that didnt have a meter would dial the points in until the engine misfired and then back em off like 180 degrees..not the correct way ...

Response From dougc426 Top Rated Answer

Hey Guys,
Took distributor out and put new wire leed in.Car started right up,Purrs like a kitten.So want to thank you all for the help...Best...Doug

Response From Hammer Time

Glad to hear it. it must have been contacting the housing somewhere.

Response From dougc426

The end for the points in the cap was very loose,not making good contact,maybe this can help someone else out,trying to figure out how to poet picture of can on this web site

Response From Hammer Time

The best way is to upload it to a photo hosting site like Photobucket.com or Imageshack.com and post the image link here and then the picture shows up here.

Response From dougc426

I down loaded a pic but now how do i post it up???

1983 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz
4.1 Engine V8
with 110,000 miles


The distributor on the car is not keyed for installation with only one orientaion. The spark plug wires were all taken off at the same time and not labeled. Clearly since its not keyed for installation the manuel is of NO help. I need to find out what the firing order is for the car, or how to go about finding the firing order. PLEASE HELP!


I've just kind of looked on line for maybe a solution.

Thanks for looking. That is the same firing order that is in the manuel. I guess my real question is how can I find out the true firing order since the distributor isn't keyed with only one orientation. The only one we know for sure that is right is the 1st one. Other than that the rest are wrong and there is nothing in the manuel about the firing order if the distributor isn't keyed, except to label them and write it down.

That is the true and only firing order for that engine.

The car was running today. We opened the hood to put fluids in and relized that the spark plug wires on the distributor were not connected the same way as it showed in the manuel. So we took them all off and re did them according to the manuel. As soon as we were finished and went to start the car again, the car wouldn't start. So if we have the spark plug wires connected correctly (according to the manuel), then why won't the car run anymore? In the manuel it says that if the plug wires aren't connected the same as it shows there in the manuel then before disconnecting the wires make sure to label them. We didn't label them in the begining, so we can't put them back the way they were when the car was running. So what can I do or where can I find out a firing order that is going to work with my car since the distributor isn't keyed for installation with one orientation?

Because somebody probably moved them and then moved the distributor to compensate for it,

You install the distributor and the wires in the correct position.

Normally I would say the same as hammer has. It dont get any easier than pictures. But its late and i cant sleep. You did not mention the dist. being removed so I am assuming it has not. Using the picture locate #1 cylinder. Remove the spark plug from #1. Have a helper slowly bump eng over with starter. At same time hold a finger over the plug hole . The moment you feel air pressure STOP, very slowly turn eng by hand with a ratchet till the (0) mark is at the pointer on the crankshaft pulley . Take dist cap off. Note which spark plug tower on cap the rotor is pointing to This is where number one plug wire will go. Follow the picture for the rest . Getting sleepy now , good luck.
