    Looking for some info on where to locate a good coil tester. If you might have a web site or phone number that would be great.:eek:

    To test coils, most manuals give ohm spec. reading using a good multimeter. Multimeters range in price from about $30(cheap) to $375(Fluke 88, top of the line). Also Snap-on sells a testor that will read the KV output of the coil, however I just use an adjustable air gap testor that will give approximate KV reading by the size of the air gap the spark will jump.
