Testing a coil with DMM
I kept saying I wanted to learn to work on small engines, someone must have been listening. So my Craftsman 6.5h Eager-1 wouldn't start. Had been VERY reliable thus far. Neighbor helped me pull the plug and and check for spark. Nothing with two different plugs. More research and it's not the flywheel brake or the spark arrester. Since this is a very expensive coil I wanted to test it and was told to check for continuity between the ground connection and the spark plug terminal. Is this correct? If so I have a dead coil that cost about twice what one normally costs. Just need to make sure before I shell out that money.
