While deciding the firing order the primary concern is the first and second order external moments in a receprocating machine. These moments are produced because of receprocating masses of the engine/machine. The magnitude of these external moments depend on receprocating mass, distance between units, the rpm and the firing order etc.

Firing order selected will aim at keeping the magnitude of external moments as low as possible.
