engine tester

Sat Jul 10, 2004 9:50 am

Well, I got blessed with this multi-purpose (dwell/rpm/resistance) Monkey-Wards engine tester - without instructions. My wife says I don't read them anyway, but I do look at the pictures. Sometimes.

I don't want to fry the tester so tell me if this is right.

To check Dwell or RPM on the (converted) 12V cub connect the Red lead to battery + and the black lead to the coil wire.

thanks

It's been a while since I used one (all my tractors now are 6 volt), but I thought it was black to ground, and red to lead between coil and distributer
