  2. Wow, thanks for the helpful info. I'm sure I will use one of the tips everyday. You've almost inspired me to use my Vantage scope more often! I guess I'll contact you later when it's time to choose a dist. for my '53 8BA. Thanks

    Buddy of mine used to check for spark on lawn mowers by pulling the plug holding it , pulling the rope, he always said it has to shock you up to your elbow or you ain't getting enough juice.

    I got an old step stool just like the one the dog is sitting on.

    addendum to torque tip - we just tighten it as tight as you can get it, then tighten it another half a turn - and your`e there!

    Man, & I always thought you measured the light bulb voltage by what degree of burns you got on your finger tips from holding it, HA,HA.

  25. "just call Bubba and da dog..."

    done good, might have to get a bigger wrench for my magneto, did the test like you said, and threw that other one over the roof and now I can't find it....lucily it was a metric open-ender any how so it won't matter much I suppose.

    Cheers,

    Drewfus:D

    I was told to never pass on those tips 'cause todays younsters aren't capable of comprehending something so technical. Oh well, the cat's out of the bag.
