CDI 511-9773 (DVA) Peak Reading Voltage Adapter and Resistance Chart

NOTICE: The resistance readings given are for a room temperature of 68F. Higher temperatures will cause a slightly higher resistance reading. Initial DVA readings should always be taken with everything connected.

The CDI peak reading voltage adapter is specifically designed to work with FLUKE AUTO Digital VOLTMETERS. This adapter will simplify the testing of electronic Ignition systems, stators, and sensors. The peak voltage readings will be approximately the same as any other peak voltage meter, and the specifications in the test manuals can be followed without any major problems. STEVENS INSTRUMENT accessories for the CD-77 peak reading volt meter, SA5, SA6 (CDI#511-9756) and PL88 (CDI#511-9775), along with the CDI 511-9770 piercing probes are highly recommended for use with this adapter. 
Instructions: Plug the adapter into the Fluke digital volt meter with the rib (+) plug in the (v, Ohms, *) jack, and the other plug in the (COM) jack. Set the switch on the Fluke meter to the DC voltage setting and connect the probes to the test points to be measured. This adapter will automatically compensate for polarity and all readings will be peak voltage. The Fluke meters are auto ranging and will read the proper voltage level without changing ranges. See the attached list of readings and instructions for testing most OMC and Mercury Outboard Ignition systems. Other ignitions can be tested if the manuals give peak voltage readings or is you test a known good Ignition system.

Footnotes:
(a) Blue to blue/white may read 600 W for some CDI stators.
(s) Check DVA and resistance readings between the Wire PAIRS for each cylinder. Each cylinder has two wires from the Trigger.
(t) Check DVA and resistance readings between the blue and yellow Stator wires (some unites may have brown wires with blue and yellow stripes).
(u) Check DVA and resistance readings between the two Stator wires (some units have two blue wires instead of a blue and a yellow).
(v) Test from the white/black stripe to all of the other Trigger wires.
(w) Measure between the two Trigger wires.
(x)Check between the #1 and #2 cylinder Trigger Wire set, and between the #3 and #4 cylinder Wire set.
(z) Read from the blue to blue/white and red to red/white.
(aa) Check from blue to ground and blue to yellow.
(bb) Red stators approx. 600-700W between white/green & green/white wires (DVA 180+). Red stators do not have low/high speed windings.
(cc) Measure from the black to the blue and red wires.
