Re: Wierd coil reading on 00 R6...
So, I checked the above readings against two other digital meters.... my newest meter and my oldest meters, and specifically the Primary Coil. All (including the first newer coil) read 0.3 Ohm when you subtract the amount of resistance from having only the probes shorted against each other. Unfortunately I don't have a meter that can read 0.00 (hundredths) Ohm. Only tenths of an Ohm meaning, they're rounding.
Here's the kicker. On the original set, one of the coils was replaced, because it was firing at a *much* smaller gap, than the other three. (each coil tested on the same cylinder) So even though the readings are showing as being on the top range of spec, they may actually be *just* out of spec. 0.08 of range ain't much. Are other capacitor discharge ignition systems this finicky?
