16-44 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Ignition System
To avoid extremely high voltage shocks, do not
touch the coil body or leads.
If the distance reading is less than the specified value, the
ignition coil or spark plug caps are defective.
To determine which part is defective, measure the arcing
distance again with the spark plug caps removed from the
ignition coil. Remove the caps by turning them counter-
clockwise.
If the arcing distance is subnormal as before, the trouble
is with the ignition coil itself. If the arcing distance is now
normal, the trouble is with the spark plug cap.
If the coil tester is not available, the coil can be checked
for a broken or badly shorted winding with the hand tester.
Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001–1394
The hand tester cannot detect layer shorts and shorts
resulting from insulation breakdown under high voltage.
Measure the primary winding resistance as follows.
Connect the hand tester between the coil terminals.
Set the tester to the × 1 Ω range, and read the tester.
Measure the secondary winding resistance as follows.
Remove the plug caps by turning them counterclockwise.
Connect the tester between the spark plug High-Tension
cables.
Set the tester to the × 1 kΩ range and read the tester.
Measure primary winding resistance [A].
Measure secondary winding resistance [B].
Ignition Coil [C]
Ignition Coil Winding Resistance
Primary Windings:
Secondary Windings:
If the tester does not read as specified, replace the coil.
To install the plug cap, turn it clockwise.

Spark Plug Removal

Remove the spark plug caps.
Remove the spark plugs using the 18 mm plug wrench.
Special Tool - Spark Plug Wrench, Hex 18: 57001-1024

Spark Plug Installation

Insert the spark plug vertically into the plug hole with the
plug installed in the plug wrench [A].
Tighten the plugs.
Special Tool - Spark Plug Wrench, Hex 18: 57001-1024
Torque - Spark Plugs: 18 N·m (1.8 kgf·m, 13 ft·lb)
Fit the plug caps securely.

Spark Plug Cleaning/Inspection

Refer to Spark Plug Cleaning/Inspection in Periodic Main-
tenance chapter.
