Driver's side 4 cylinders are from front to back 1-3-5-7
Pass side 4 cylinder from front to rear 2-4-6-8
On your distributor car , you will see a raised number "1" , obviously , that's for the #1 cylinder . From that point , and going clockwise on the cap , follow the sequence on your intake , again raised letters . I think it's 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2
Make sure all the wire-to-cap connections snap on

More than it would seem from what just happened, so much so that I was embarrassed to even have to post the question on Jeep Forum.

You and most of my neighbors, but I bought it NEW, I ordered it in the beginning of October 1978 and had to wait till March 22, 1979 for it to be delivered, so I think I'll keep it. It draws a crowd every time I start it in my driveway. Just had the engine balanced & blueprinted (because when they pulled the heads they found a factory defect in cylinder #6), 4 Bolt Caps installed, heads ported pls a lot more and I also had a lot of trick stuff done to the trans by a guy that does trannys for NASCAR. This year it gets new carpet and other interior items.
Three lessons I have learned from this experience:
1) No matter how awake you think you are at 4:00AM you probably are not.
2) If you mix up the wires for #4 & #6 cylinder your Jeep will run, it just will not run right and will miss like crazy.
3) If you ever do something dumb to your Jeep, ALWAYS go to Jeep Forum FIRST because they will always be willing to help and they will always(so far at least) have the right answer!!
Thank You so much NewfieZJ for the help!!!
Anyone interested in a NEW set of ACCEL Distributor Cap & Rotor for a Mopar 6 cyl. PM me. I have a new in the wrong box set. I ordered a set for my 5.9L V-8 and that is what the part numbers on the box match, but inside both boxes are 6 cyl. items. I will send more pics to your email address if you would like so you can see more detail. They are brand new, never installed. I paid $17.99 and $16.94 plus tax. I looks like the rotor might be Part # 130229. If interested make a reasonable offer for one or both.
