    Check with "Stevens Experimental" for that and other special equipment.

    hey joe reeves, ive done several searches on stevens experimental & can only find articles on pshycology. can you attatch a url or other link that will lead to the online purchase of these items? can you tell me the difference between the s-80 & the m80 neon test light?can the tests described in my repair manual be done with other test equipment?if so,do you know of a publication that presents the procedure?

    The neon lite by Stevens (S 80) and Merc-o-Tronic (M80) has not been recommended for over 20 years. The peak reading voltmeter or DVI is used now and is more accurate.You can buy the meters for over $100 from Stevens or Merc-o-tonic or buy the adapter for a digital meter for about $49. Several companies make them but you can order from Precision Mfg. at 800-237-5947. http://outboardparts.com/troubleshoo...eshooting3.htm is a good place to read up on ignition system troubleshooting.

    The website in my previous post and the sheet that comes with the peak reading meters or adapters will tell you the specs that you need.
