If it is used to fix something? It's a tool!

Picked up this Sun analyzer at a local community college auction. Now to learn how to use it. Let the fun begin.

Mark, looks just like the ones we had at the TG&Y Automotive Store I managed back in the mid 70s. Not too complicated if I could learn it.šŸ¤£

I am looking forward to learning about it and how to use it. We used to see them everywhere, now just part of history.

I did not get the operator manual, but bought a pdf copy on eBay that looks promising. It appears that the leads are intact including that nice delay timing light. I have not had a chance yet to check it out, wanting to read up on it before I mess something up on it.
