    I remember spending a fair bit of time as a kid with a new trumpet trying to work out which order my valves had to go back in after cleaning before I realised what those numbers were for.

    On the odd occasion I've had to do this, not my horns I might add, I start with the 2nd valve.
    Pull the crook out, then you can see if the ports line up. After that you've only got 2 options.
