I'll agree totally on having zapped myself a few times..... ok at least once a week. I have done it on gm coils, water heaters, and had a cousin talk me into peeing on a dc electric fence (never forget that 1).

but ya gotta admit that its funny when somebody else does it for once!!!!!

Sorry about that but to us old timers who work with this stuff all the time its nice to see that we aren't the only ones who get bit by one.
When you turn it over by hand it should turn very hard and then snap as it goes past the slow speed holds on the mag. if it does not snap then you need to get it repaired.
Goto this site for a lesson how to fix and test mags.

Remind me of the time we were working on a mytag motor . My youg son grabed a wire in each hand while my older son kicked it over to see if they had a bite . well they did and ten minutes later my younger son started to whistle never could before. I wanted to hook him up again to see if we could get him to play the piano.

kinda reminds Me of the FFA days .. Practice Chapter Meeting Contest,, when A guy made a motion to cut the Cows legs off on one side so the Cow could Accomadate Our hilly Farm ..Never mind the rib poking , I am Sure everyone responding has Done something That We All Could tease about , however Old is correct that the Mag spins at a slower RPM than a cordless Drill . Simply hand spinning with a spark plug wire is best Way I check Them . Blessings . Jim

You Canucks are something else, next time stand in a wet spot for better conduction of the spark voltage. If your eyes light up then its Ok.

Wound you believe you didn't really find out if it works or not. Why you ask well that drill would spin it fast enough that even if it was weak it would zap you. A mag should zap you when you spin it over by hand. As far as testing it you don't need to feel the spark take a plug and hook it up and then lay the plug on the side of the mag and spin it by hand. If you get a good white.blue spark then the mag works as it should. DON'T use the drill to test it because you don't spin and engine that fast when you start one so you will not have as strong of a spark

sure definitely do that....... but you should do it for about a minute in each hole to be sure the condensor doesnt croak out. and be sure to hold the wire prong tightly!!!!!
