It needs to be cut with a valve seat cutter. A valve seat cutter is also an expensive tool but not as expensive as a valve grinder.

When your ignition switch is turned in the “start” and “run” position, the “I” or ignition terminal is energized and power flows from the battery through the primary winding of the ignition coil through the points and back to the engine ground. The primary winding of the ignition coil are the two small terminals marked + (positive) and – (negative). A small gauge wire goes from the ignition switch and connects to the + positive terminal of the ignition coil. The breaker points and condenser are both connected to the – (negative) terminal of the ignition coil. Your spark plug cable is connected to the secondary terminal which is the large wire port in the top of the ignition coil. Your spark plug is then connected to the high tension spark plug cable and screwed into your engine’s combustion chamber.

The continuity function measures resistance, and if there is a complete connection the meter will give an audible beep. If there is no continuity your DMM will show “OL” on the display meaning there is an open line. You can use this to test for electrical shorts in wiring or components. I commonly use this function to quickly test for shorted ignition switches and ignition coils.

When the current is switched on or off, the electro-magnetic field increases and decreases, rapidly causing, in effect, a radio signal. The effect is similar to the crackle that can sometimes be heard on the radio or television when something like a fridge switches on and off. This radiated signal can be picked up by the other wires in the system and cause interference to the normal working voltages in the system
By Blandine Honorine. Electrical Wiring. Published at Thursday, January 18th 2018, 03:51:55 AM. You are required to run conductors and cables from terminal to terminal without splices. However, an exception allows you to install a splice in leads attached to electrical equipment, such as motors and solenoids.

If the screen is to be connected then make it off in the same way as for coaxial cable with a soldered pigtail and a sleeve.

For example we can determine if an ignition coil is healthy or not by measuring the resistance of its windings. To measure resistance, set your meter to Ω ohms resistance. If you need to select a range, select the smallest range normally 200 ohms. Place the red probe onto one of the small terminals of the ignition coil, and the black one on the remaining small terminal. Your resistance will then display. A normal ignition coil should read about 3.5 to 4 ohms. If your meter reads a much higher resistance it means your ignition coil may have a short and is faulty.

Wires and cables (conductors) are insulated and protected by a variety of materials (insulators) each one having its own particular properties. The type of material used will be determined by the designer who will take into account the environment in which a control panel or installation is expected to operate as well as the application of individual wires within the panel.

Once you do, you are able to read diagrams quickly, and can often understand a circuit at a glance. The more you work with both line and wiring diagrams, the better you will become in analyzing them.
By Claudie Ulysse. Electrical Wiring. Published at Wednesday, January 17th 2018, 12:13:48 PM. Conductors and cables should run from terminal to terminal without any intervening joins. This refers to making a joint in the middle of a wire or cable. If it is necessary for any reason then use a suitable connector or terminal block. Don’t use a twisted and soldered joint.
