While I worked for decades without one,
using old plugs, meters, grabbing wires, etc.
an unnamed poster who I listen to, finally stressed it enough
to make me listen......I bought a spark checker
Now I keep one handy always.
no start?, quit while running?
spark checker goes on an installed plug, hook the spark plug wire to it. crank it and watch...
tells me if spark is occurring in the cylinder where it counts.
No? go thru the ignition until I find the problem.
yes? go thru the fuel system
(I also have a draincock on the carb bowl)
trouble-shooting now takes seconds
I've posted before on a JD that sparked plugs very nicely that were laying on the deck. But, the inline spark checker showed a pathetic random spark in cylinder.
