[Healeys] Distributor cap wiring

The correct firing order for a BT7 is 1, 5, 3, 6, 2, and 4. We share the same engine so I doubt it would be different for the BJ8’s and BJ7’s.

Subject: [Healeys] Distributor cap wiring


I've come to realize that my cap was rotated and re-wired in the dim past for some reason.

That is to say, all the cylinders fire in the correct order, and when they should, but it's not in its original orientation.

I would like to return it to the correct position, and re-wire the cap.

It seems to me that the cap should have been wired as in the attached diagram...can someone confirm this for me please?


Stephen, BJ8
