poor current to the coil. Go to Step 5d.
Figure 5-106. Coil Test II
Coil Test II. Connect the positive (+) lead to the breaker points (-) side of the coil. If the meter
reads 11.5 to 12 volts, the coil is ok. Go to Step 6. If the meter reads 11.5 volts or less, the coil
is bad. Replace it and go to Step 5e, if the points and condenser check ok.
Check the wires between the coil and the ignition switch and the coil and the points. Use a volt-
Remove the ignition wire from the ignition switch and the coil.
