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.

The ability to detect, observe, and measure electricity is crucial when trying to understand how a tractor works and learning what you can do to fix it. The digital multi-meter is like a doctor’s stethoscope. It allows us to see the invisible force of electricity and measure how it interacts with the components in our engines and tractors. A digital multi-meter measures current (amps), voltage (volts), and resistance (ohms).

You're permitted to use wiring channels if they're made of a flame-retardant insulating material. If you're working with back-connected control panels, you must provide access doors or swing out panels that swing about a vertical axis. Multiple-device control panels must have terminal blocks or attachment plugs and receptacles to terminate and connect all outgoing control conductors.

Two of the phases are also connected to the transformer to power the logic. The start and stop buttons are at the left of the box (note: normally these are mounted elsewhere, and a separate layout drawing would be needed).

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.

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!

These conductors must be yellow throughout the entire circuit, including wiring in the control panel and the external field wiring. • White or natural gray represents a grounded circuit conductor. • White with blue stripe represents a grounded DC current-carrying circuit conductor. International and European standards require you to use light blue for the neutral conductor. • White with yellow stripe represents grounded AC current-carrying control circuit conductors that remain energized when the disconnecting means is in the OFF position. For additional circuits powered from different sources that remain energized when the main disconnecting means is in the OFF position, you must use striping colors other than green, yellow or blue to uniquely identify the grounded conductors.

What happened? We will go into this common problem later in the article, but for now remember never make assumptions. Always look for evidence that suggests a cause. Evidence comes in many forms such as smoke coming from your engine, metal particles in your oil, and oil leaks from your transmission.
