English term or phrase:bump
I found this term several times in a car repair manual (technician's handbook).
1) Measure bump "a" between camshaft housing and cylinder head using dial gauge.
2) Measure bump "a" between cylinder head and cylinder block (flatness) using dial gauge and special tool.
Could it possibly be translated "Unebenheit" in this special context?
Ist keine Abbildung vorhanden, in die dieses "a" eingezeichnet ist und man sehen kann, was gemeint ist? Oft senden einem die Auftraggeber aus irgendeinem Grund die Abbildungen nicht mit. Auf Anfrage erhält man sie dann in der Regel sofort.

Explanation: Cam lobes
The bumps on a camshaft that contact and activate such devices as the lifters, which operate the valves, and the rubbing block, which causes the points to open and close, as the cam spins with the distributor shaft.
