Question about Ferret Instruments Digital Tach Advance Timing Light
The light does'nt flash and the diplay shows 0000 when power leads and inductive pickup are connected. The timing light worked perfectly the first time, and stoped during the ignition timing.
The Ferret FI-86 was a speciality light was originally to be made for a European auto company. Needless to say Ferret was quite surprised when the European auto company said they only want 20 lights.
They were shown to an American Tool Company that added them to thier "Ferret Line" of test equipment. After that the unit gained popularity with Marine and Motorcycle Techs.
Here is what is the first thing I would check - The pigtail coming out the handle probably broken and the number 2 pin which is the signal from the pickup is not getting through which will give you the ZEROS across the board.
The cable is a 5 pin DIN connector, should be able to find these most electronis stores....also refered to as a MIDI cable.
The next thing you might want to check is the carbon parts of the pick up the "U" shape cabon and the "I" shaped carcon make sure these are not missing or broken.
Also make sure you have the switches in the proper positions.
