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.

To measure AC voltage for example on your engine’s stator, you first locate the two wires coming from the stator. Turn your DMM to AC Voltage. Place the red probe onto one of the wires, and the black probe on the other wire. You should read about 24 to 30 VAC.

But when they power 4 wheeled machines such as Lawn and Garden Tractors, Skidsteers, and Road Grading Machines, you want that weight to aid in delivering that power to the ground.

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.

No click of the solenoid, nothing happens at all. Before assuming your starter is bad, grab your DMM and set it to DC Volts. Remove the wire going to the small terminal of your starter solenoid and connect the red probe of your DMM to the wire. Now connect your black probe to a ground. Turn your tractor’s key. Your DMM reads no voltage. This tells you that power is not going from your battery to the solenoid. Next remove the wires from the back of your ignition switch that are connected to the “B” and “S” terminals on your switch. Set your DMM to Continuity and connect your probes to the “B” and “S” terminals of the switch. Turn your tractor’s key and if there is no “beep” you know your ignition switch has a short internally and should be replaced.

When electricity was originally used for practical purposes, it was used for communication in the form of the electric telegraph and the telephone. Petroleum and paraffin lamps were still lighting homes until the late 1800s, when Thomas Edison developed the light bulb.

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.

The combined cross-sectional area of all conductors and cables is not permitted to exceed 50% of the interior cross-sectional area of the raceway. The fill provisions are based on the actual dimensions of the conductors or cables used.

I want to emphasize that the wear is very slight, and cannot replace an actual valve seat cutter. I use valve lapping compound to show me the contact points from the valve seat onto the valve face.
