Hcct meter mounting

Post by AndyClary » Wed May 01, 2019 8:41 pm

Does anyone have any photos showing how the meter mounts on an 18z245 cool tester. Just picked one up that needs restoration and I might be missing something.

Well, yeah, I missed that. This coil tester is the Ford design but doesn't have the script so it was one of the later clones. It uses the big Weston meter. Any photos or information would be appreciated.

There should be a cradle that the meter mounts on.
