Title: Herbrand Test Meters With Carrying Case Instructions Sought
Post by: hddennis on June 16, 2019, 04:40:55 PM
Just acquired a late 1950's Herbrand Tune Up Center which includes an HT-660 Coil Tester an HT-400 Tach & Dwell Meter and an HT-864 Tach Engine RPM Regulator Tester and carrying case for all 3. I found a manual online for the HT-660 Coil tester but am drawing a blank on the rest. These were used for a man cave and had all the leads cut off and nowI need to know what they looked like and how to use them.

the coil tester is / was sold as a Fox Valley also, might find more info searching for that.

[/img][/img][/img]Thanks Guys, I appreciate the help. Didn't know about the Fox Valley version  but will check it out. The coil tester I've been able to find instructions for both versions. I've replaced all the wires on the coil tester and checked for continuity with all my connections and switches but it still won't work. Opened it up and find a 4 pin vibrator that I think may have corroded points and thanks to a You Tube video I'm going to open it up and see if I can get it working again.

Took a little bit but it was in the area I thought it was. Got a surprise the puppy left a pile right near where the analyzer is, didn't step in it.
