In our example below the bad spark plug ignition cable has a resistance reading of 5 mega ohms. That's 5,000,000 ohms! We know that a typical small engine ignition coil uses between 3 to 5 amps. By using the above mathematical formula we can determine that the bad spark plug ignition cable caused between 15,000,000 to 20,000,000 volts to be generated by the ignition coil!
Measuring voltage is one of the most common tests a tractor mechanic will conduct as he troubleshoots a system. The presence of the correct voltage will determine if a component is functioning correctly or not. A common voltage test will be of the battery. A healthy battery should read about 12.5 volts, and a battery that is being charged should measure between 13 and 14.5 volts.
