2. In the absence of a test rated sportsman disconnect a wire from one of свеч, take away isolating tip and fix a wire the isolated tool on distance not боле 6 mm from the bared site of weight.
3. Turn коленвал a starter and watch a rated sportsman or a candle wire. There should be an intensive spark of blue colour.
4. If the spark is available, on candles necessary pressure (check up other wires) moves. Turn out candles and check up them (subsection 2.16 see).
