Because that is all it need to start up, it wouldn't make sense for it to start up on all cylinders. It's alot easier on the battery also

1996 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE,4.0L,6CYCL.,2WD,ELETRICAL PROBLEMS THAT MAKES MY TRUCK BACKFIRE SO HARD IT BLOWS MY MUFFLER OPEN LIKE A ALUMINUM CAN,SOMETIMES YOU CAN FEEL ELECTRICITY SHOOT TO THE PASSENGER


There are a couple of things that might cause a backfire and NONE of them have any relation to electricity:
1. Engine timing, the relationship of the CAM and the CRANK shaft. IF a valve is open when the engine cylinder fires then the resulting action is a backfire.
2.Cylinder misfire: There is one cylinder exhausting unfired fuel to the exhaust manifold and if he manifold is hot enough, the fuel mixture ignites.

When setting the timing and the car back fires, what does that mean?


If it backfires through intake - it's to far advanced, if through exhaust it's to far retarded

Cylinders 1-3-5 are on the back side of the engine. Cylinder 1 is the passenger side and cylinder 5 is the drivers side.

Cylinders 2-4-6 are on the front of the engine. Cylinder 2 is on the passenger side and cylinder 6 is on the drivers side.

The coil pack will have the cylinders labeled at each post.

Where is number one on distribor cap? which is cylinder #1 ? On 1980 triumph TR7


looking from above, it's top right rear, towards the engine block!, same as the spitfire,& Vittess. Lucky git for having one! The easiest way to find out, is to remove the spark plug, turn the engine over with a socket on the bottom pully of he engine, put your finger in the plug hole until No 1 it at the top of it's stroke with the rotor arm fitted, then fit the distributer cap, There is only one way way it should fit, if not rotate it 180 degrees, and try again. To set the other firing line, follow the same instrusctions above, but I think it's fire 2413.
