A great feature of many DMM’s is the continuity setting. 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 purpose of an internal combustion engine is to transform chemical energy into mechanical energy. This is accomplished by igniting an air/fuel mixture that causes a shaft to rotate. We then use this rotating shaft to create useful work.
As your engine turns, the camshaft pushes your breaker points open, which creates a high voltage induction in your ignition coil. This high voltage power runs through your spark plug igniting your engine. Residual electricity in your ignition coil’s primary circuit is absorbed by the condenser.
A hydraulic system is a simple, space efficient way of multiplying and transferring your engine’s power to multiple applications for your tractor. By utilizing hydraulics you can build a front end loader, backhoe, 3 point hitch, 3 way plow, a dump trailer and much more. The limits are in your imagination.
