This is a NIFTY way of monitoring the engine ---- I mistakenly gave the credit to Sandy Cameron ---sorry--that is the senility factor. So if You were the originator of this little trick --step up and get your credits. ---It works due to the special alloy of the ballast resistor ---it is very sensitive to heat. --SO ? --well it works best with the new type plugs. And man does it work or what ? ----if you have a cool or HOT cylinder it will show. I am impressed. It belongs in the Nifty trick files. ----READ my lips. Hagar. PS : no an ordinary ohm meter is NOT ok you have to use a "Whetstone" circuit. ---a bridge Roger Brown please explain that in good english.---TIA.
