Default Help! Firing Order on CAP?

I Have a 95 S-10 Blazer (4.3L) I just re-did the plugs and cant get it to start. I know my order but I dont know exactly were the cables go on the cap (i thought I did). My order is
Back or Car

CAP
6 5
4 3
2 1

Front of Car

My cap looks like this
...0 0...
0.......0
...0 0...

... so frustrating

That looks like the cylinder ID right? anyway the firing order is 165432 #1 on the cap is in the front on the driver's side and the order goes clockwise as you install them 1-6-5-4-3-2 hope this helps, because I don't quite understand your question here.

And welcome to the site!

Here is what you wan (I think).

...4 3...
5.......2
...6 1...


The cylinder ID is what you listed here
6 5
4 3
2 1
The odd numbered cylinders are on the driver's side 1-3-5 from front-to-back
The even numbered cylinders are on the passenger's side 2-4-6 from front-to-back.

Glad I could help, that's why I'm here (that....and to win the Ride Of the Month poll coming anyday now....hint)..lol

The oil on your old plugs is probably due to leaking valve stemm seals. If so the engine will smoke a little bit on cold-start-up.
