If its just the cap you're puttin on, it should be straightforward. Just remove the wires from your old cap and put on new one first. Make sure to do one wire at a time. Unclip old cap and clip new one on. Here's a pic in case you get wires mixed up.

I'm not sure bud. Turn it around and try it. It can't hurt anything. From the wires I can see, your firing order looks correct!

The clips that hold down the cap? That stuff all looked good man. They could only go one place. Did you end up turnin the cap so the MSD is right side up?

I can't make the msd sign cause it won't fit on if it is facing me the clips are just pointing the wron direction compared to the diagram

Naw man. That's all good how you have it. Go through your wires one at a time again, making sure they're on there nice and snug.

Go off of the last pic I posted. Put the #1 wire where your old cap says too. Follow the firing order ccw like the last pic I posted said too.
