Secondary side: high tension wire to high tension wire
cap installed 10500 ohms
cap removed 6300 ohms

I have it in PDF and it is 137mb. I downloaded last year on one of the forums but it seems you can't do that anymore. Anyway if you know how I could e-mail certain pages let me know. I recently helped another fellow on this forum and I had to print the pages and then scan them and then e-mail them. Kind of a pain. I can highlight parts of it... but do not have the option to copy, send etc...
The picture shows taking the reading between the coil itself and the cap which is what snaps on the plug this should be 10500, it looks like you take the reading on the input of the coil and the end of the plug wire.
