NOTE

Be sure the battery is fully charged.

Do not remove the spark plugs.

Stick Coil Primary Peak Voltage Inspection


Install the new spark plug [A] into each stick coil [B], and ground them onto the engine.

Connect the peak voltage adapter [C] into the hand tester [D] which is set to the DC 250 V range.

Connect the adapter to the lead wire-peak voltage adapter [E] which is connected between the stick coil connector and stick coil.

Stick Coil Primary Peak Voltage Inspection


Connections: Adapter (R, +) → Lead Wire-Peak Voltage Adapter (W) Adapter (BK, –) → Lead Wire-Peak Voltage Adapter (R)

WARNING

To avoid extremely high voltage shocks, do not touch the spark plugs or tester connections.

Stick Coil Primary Peak Voltage Standard: 100 V or more

If the reading is less than the specified value, check the following.

Tire Wear, Damage
As the tire tread wears down, the tire becomes more susceptible to puncture and failure. An accepted estimate is that 90% of all tire failures occur during the last 10% of tread life (90% worn). So it is false economy and unsafe to use the tires until they are bald In accordance with the ...

Switch Inspection
Using a hand tester, check to see that only the connections shown in the table have continuity. Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394 For the switch housings and the ignition switch, refer to the tables in the Wiring Diagram. If the switch has an open or short, repair it or replace it w ...
