In the case of a wire connection, it needs to be a very good conductor. Good conductors include most metals. The most common conductor used in wire is copper, although you may come across others such as aluminium. An insulator on the other hand is a material which does not allow an electric current to flow. Rubber and most plastics are insulators.

From an electrical standpoint, industrial machine equipment and tools - from drill presses to multi-motored automatic machines - can present special fire and shock hazards.

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 float should be perfectly parallel to the upper carburetor body or sit slightly lower than level. This keeps fuel below where the two halves of the atmospheric vent meet. Also make sure your carburetor halves are not warped when the bolts are tightened down. If there is a visible gap between the two halves of the carburetor at the atmospheric vent; sand down the two halves until the gap is gone.

One bite at a time.” If your engine is running poorly it could be caused by several problems. It’s best to break your problem down into separate systems and work through each system individually.

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.

Transformers may be fitted with turret tags suitable for soldering and printed circuit board assemblies may have solder pins.

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.
