The distributor on the 1968 Corvette 327 cu. in. engine has been rotated clockwise to gain needed clearance between the tachometer drive and firewall.  The positioning of the distributor cap spark plug wire towards have been altered due to the repositioning of this distributor.

Figure 2 shows the new location of the spark plug wire towers.  Although the firing order has not changed (1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2), each tower is indexed clockwise by one from the conventional arrangement.

This change affects the 1968 Corvette 327 cu. in. engine only.  All other V-8 engines are wired in the conventional manner.
