Question about Mazda B2600
Take the spark plug out of the hole on the engine. the very front plug.
have someone bump the engine for you. take the cap off of the distributor, and when your friend bumps the engine watch the way the rotor is turning. i think its counterclock wise. but anyway, hold your finger over the spark plug hole and have the friend bump -bump- bump the key until the air pressure "Pssst" blows your finger out of the hole. thats the compression stroke of your engine. and right now its set to send a spark to that #1 piston.
SO look at the rotor, and pay attention to what direction the rotor is pointed. and when you put your distributor cap back on, your wire for #1 spark plug has to be pointed at the rotors tip, to get spark. so put cap back on, and then put #1 at the rotor tip, and remember what direction the rotor spins ? now put your spark plug wires on the cap to match the "firing order" The firing order is 1-3-4-2 with the cylinder closest to the front of the vehicle being #1 so if the rotor spins backwards . wherever the rotor tip is now ( since you bumped it to the compresson stroke ) on the #1 cylinder, you know where 1 is. now put #3 piston wire on the next plug, on the distributor then 4 , then 2. tighten everything, put the spark plug back in. and start your truck bro.
