A little this and a little that, back and forth
"Well, that's quite a switch!" Tom said electrically.
Overcame your resistance, I see. ;-)
Charge! I have a battery of electrical puns. :-)
"But, what is that switch in the link intended for?" Tom toggled...
There must be a multiple clip board turned on because it was supposed to be an updated link to the Gen1 wiring information. Sorry for my confusion.
The switch is for a CDI coil tester which I posted elsewhere. I made three of them yesterday, two for technician friends. It used a resistor to limit capacitor charging rate, a diode in series with that to 1/2 wave rectify, the DPDT switch alternates connecting a capacitor between (normally closed) 120 Volt AC and (normally open) a pair of jumper leads connected to the CDI ignition coil. Hook up to coil, hook up spark plug or spark checker to coil lead and ground, plug in tester to AC, wait a few seconds then push button and see spark from spark plug or spark checker. Repeat.
I thought you were making electrical puns, Tom.
"I'm shocked that you would think I'd ever be less than entirely serious", Tom said in an electrified tone.
By the by, a good job on the pin-outs and pictures. I really should get going on the Gen2 harness but I'm afraid if I did I'd lose steam on the oil pressure experiments (as if I'm moving out on that, even).
Now, I'm going to do a wee shuffle and pull these posts into one post.
