I have watched the videos and looked at the illustrations and it seems that a gauss meter is a very handy thing to have when charging the magnets. Where does someone find those nifty hand held analog gauss meters? Anyone have one they can loan me for a week?
I use a two pound iron piston, that is what is recommended in the MTFCA Engine booklet.
I'm not so sure those were gauss meters. As I recall, the photos show they go up to 50 but the scale is undefined. 50 gauss is about the strength of the average iron-based refrigerator magnet. I would think the Mode T magnets would far exceed that.
There was a discussion on the meters a while back but I can't find it now so I don't know the final outcome or if a scale was determined. I think Steve started the old thread.
As Tony referenced, the piston test seems to be an acceptable gauge of full strength.
hi mark philip here. i replied to your pm it may have gone to your e mail. any way you dont need a meter just follow the steps if your coils are good it will work. let me know if you got my e mail. philip
the 1156 bulb teat is also a good way of seeing if you are currently putting out any voltage at all
you can search magneto test light. philip
Ha,ha,....some of the silly unintended "auto-correct" changes are funny! I'm sure you meant "1156 bulb test", right?
yea i did

They are shipped from St Louis, MO and cost under $100 with shipping, if the price has not increased.
Yes, we finally connected. Crazy stuff ... I only ever have trouble with communications by forum members. Like the Bermuda Triangle.
Bought mine from R.B. Annis nearly 10 years ago.
