A bump cap is exactly what's said in the name it's a cap which protects against light bumps not to be confused with a hard hat Bump caps are generally not accepted as safety wear in the construction industry in Ireland and the UK

A bump cap is a hardhat with a chin strap that is made of a more lightweight material and that. It is meant for wearing at sites where there is a risk of scraping or bumping one's head.

Distributor cap firing order

When facing the engine from the front of the truck, the cylinders are numbered from front left to rear left side of engine 1234. the right side would ten be from front to back 5678. The firing order for a 302cid engine (5.0 litre) is 15426378. The number 1 plug wire in your distributor cap should typically be located on the back side of the cap itself, but the best way to know is to pop the cap and turn your engine over by bumping your starter momentarily until you get your timing marks where you can see them on your harmonic balancer. To ensure you are at top dead center, you may want to pull spark plug number one and stick a screwdriver into the hole. If the screwdriver is stopped because it hits something right away, this means you are 180degrees off and will need to again bump your starter until you once again align your timing marks and then check the cylinder with your screwdriver. this time it should easily enter the cylinder. replace your spark plug and attach the plug wire to the spark plug. Now looking at the rotor underneath the distributor cap, the position it is pointing to is where you plug in wire number 1. You wire your distributor cap counter-clockwise 15426378. I hope this helps you out.

I have a 1995 nissan Altama pulled all spark plug wires off and now don't know how they go back can you tell me form cap to block it's a 4 cyc and 2.4 litler

Firing order is 1342. Take the cap off and turn it over to see which direction the rotor turns in. If its CW then number 3 on the cap will be to the right of number 1 if its CCW number 3 will be to the left of number 1. Then pull number 1 plug and turn the engine over by bumping the key temporarily and place your finger over the spark plug hole. When you feel the air compressing slowly bump it up to get it up to TDC and look at the rotor, when its at TDC it will point at number 1 on the cap. Mark the rotor end in relation to the manifold so you will always know where number 1 should line up. Then replace the spark plug, and all the wires in the firing order making sure you pay attention to where number 3 is depending on the rotation you determined before..

Need to get my hands on a manual for a mazda b2600. Just put a new head gasket in it and the timing is all out.

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.

if its a five speed I can safely assume its not an automatic
good that makes it a bit easier

so you have a manual trans that makes the truck miss
that hardly seems possible
but try this
next time it does this keep your foot at same point on throttle(not floored)
and push in on clutch
does engine die
or does truck smooth out
if it dies you have an ign problem on engine
if it smooths out you have a gear case/transfer case or clutch problem

if it turns out to be the engine
ck the distributor cap for cracks
place strong light bulb inside cap ( remove it first) no need to remove all the wires
look for light on outside of cap

I had a guy bring me a 05 ranger that did all sorts of weird stuff
like not running if it was raining outside
starts right up but ran rough so bad you could not even get it in gear
and yep you guessed it the distributor cap was broke
(so bad you could see spark comming out the side )
15 bucks for a cap

Spark after i changed distributor cap but wont start

sounds like you haven't indexed the rotor correctly or the cap isn't seated correctly.  Did you replace the plug wires correctly?  Dis you bump the position of the distributor?

Hello janeknows. The shaft of the fan motor may have a bearing gone bad. Follow these steps to locate problem. #1-turn power off by tripping the breaker, place your fingers on the shaft surrorting the blades & SLOWLY rotate the blades feeling for a catch or bump. A bump felt I suggest replacing the motor. No bump #2- remove the screws holding the cover supporting the control switches. Located among the wiring is a box with 2 or three wires. This is a capacitor. Note the info on the capacitor (1.4mf125v). Contact the fans Mgfr they may send you one for free if not visit your local hardware store and ask. Replace the unit using the wire caps in the unit or snip & strip the wire using new wire caps. Note witch wire went where. Turn power on and test operation.

What do you mean it will bump, then cuts out?, Then you say it just wont't bump? Does it cut out after you go over a bump in the road, does the speaker bottom out and cuts out? Please you need to be a little bit clearer with the fault. and the symptoms.
