Re: Can a VR and ignition capacitor be tested with ohm meter
One more thought on "ignition capacitors". You're probably talking about the noise suppression cap that attaches to the positive coil terminal. However, if you're talking about the breaker point "condensor", then there are notable symptoms when that cap fails. The engine will run reasonably well at idle, but at higher RPMs it will miss, perform like crap.
