Suitable lights range from inexpensive neon
bulb types ($2-3) to powerful xenon strobe
lights ($20-40). See Figure 9. Neon timing lights
are difficult to see and must be used in dimly l i t
areas. Xenon strobe timing lights can be used
outside in bright sunlight.
Many manufacturers offer kits that combine
several useful instruments. Some come in a con-
venient carry case and are usually less expensive
than purchasing one instrument at a time.
Figure 10 shows one of the kits that is available.
The prices vary with the number of instruments
included in the kit.
Manometer (Carburetor Synchronizer)
A manometer is essential for accurately syn-
engines. The instrument detects intake pressure
differences between carburetors and permits
them to be adjusted equally. A suitable
manometer costs about $25 and comes with
detailed instructions for use. See Figure 11.
A fire extinguisher is a necessity when work-
ing on a vehicle. It should be rated for both
Class B (flammable liquids
paint, etc.) and Class C (electrical
etc.) type fires. I t should always be kept within
reach. See Figure 12.
