Hi Andy,
Good point. I keep a squirt bottle of H2O
on my ignition bench to check secondary insulation. I little mist sprayed on the wires will make bad ones go nuts on the scope. A word of caution about low-tech spark testing...the later "E"-Core coils(small ones)should not be given an "impossible arc" to jump. The spark will find ground inside the coil core and cause an eventual failure.
I never saw many coil failures until the 560s came out with the squat coils on them.
Regards,
Randy D.
