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.
