I have three Pertronix units I'm testing for pass/fail. Based on what I've learned from Pertronix, during the test the voltage should fluctuate between "0"(?) and 12V+. Which, as I see it, taken as open/closed or on/off, similar points opening and closing.
However, what I'm getting using a VOM set to DC 12Vs, is a fluctuation of 6.4 to 12Vs+. Now, I'm not sure if it's a case of the VOM not reactingto the "open" (thus the low voltage reading) cycle quick enough or this indicates something else?
