How do you test an Accel Super coil?

Quick test, use circuit tester (screwdriver with bulb inside) with aligator clip on green neg side of coil (or TACH on HEI cap) and tip of tester on a good ground like intake bolt. Have someone crank engine over, if light flickers than it’s the coil.

What happens if you hook up a coil backwards?

Reversing the coil polarity will reduce the spark, but not stop it. Replacing the condenser & checking the point gap is a good place to start. Actually, reversing the coil polarity DOES NOT reduce the spark. It just reduces the effectiveness of the spark.

Are Accel coils any good?

The ACCEL coils fit as good as the OEM ones. Between the new spark plugs and the coils, the engine does feel smoother at idle, and seems to be more responsive at acceleration. ACCEL uses high quality materials that should stay within spec longer, and has experience in developing high performance products.

How do you test an HEI coil?

To test the resistance of the coil, remove the coil cover so you can see the red and yellow wire. Using the multi-meter set on the ohms setting, touch the positive lead to the red wire terminal and the negative lead to the yellow wire terminal. Testing the secondary circuit of the coil.

How do you tell which side of a coil is positive?

Crank the engine over (do not start it) and the needle of the voltmeter should show an upward swing to the plus or positive side (do not worry about taking a reading). If volt the needle swings down to the negative side and gives a negative reading, your coil is hooked up backwards.

Does negative side of coil go to ground?

One end of the secondary is grounded (the ‘negative’ terminal), the coil produces the voltage (the ‘battery’) and the output goes out the ‘positive’ terminal to the spark plug, where it jumps the spark gap and returns to ground, completing the circuit.
