Activity Overview / Details

Using the two dual trace ignition scopes in the shop and various vehicles, students can break up into their work groups and view primary and secondary ignition patterns.  We then substitute bad ignition wires, install an inline spark tester, increase spark plug gaps etc. to see what different conditions look like in the ignition patterns.  Students are encouraged to look for anomolies and attempt to determine the cause.
