Picked up a really cool Heathkit model IO-20 ignition analyzer at a estate sale for $15 today. It still looks like brand new, but it's from 1960! Hooked it up the the 1960 Pontiac's 389 engine, to give it a test, to make sure it worked. It seems to work great. This is the second take of it working, as the first take was drowned out by ignition noise. I changed the microphone on the camera, and the second take was fine. I did play with it more, after videoing it, figuring out all the settings. Everything on the Catalina's ignition system was spot on! The tester will test; primary voltage across breaker points and voltage in secondary circuit. It will parade the primary or secondary signals for each cylinder in sequence across the screen, or superimpose the primary or secondary signals for each cylinder in sequence across the screen. The screen is 4.5" in diameter. Primary pattern height is 3/4" for 6 volt cars and 1" for 12 volt cars. Secondary pattern height is 1" on 6 or 12 volt cars. Vertical expand ratio is 2 to 1. Horizontal expand ratio is 10 to 1. The unit weighs 12 pounds and is 8" high X 9.5" wide X 16" long. It states it will run on 105 to 125 volts, 50 or 60 cycles per second, and is 30 watts. Thank you for watching my video.
