As your new mechanic would say:

"so how do you plug this into the OBDII port?"

Thats cool...I have a similar one (not Sun) that I picked up at a garage sale years ago. I dont have any cars with points around, but its fun to have in the cupboard, along with timing lights and dwell meters. In a few more years, no one will even know what they are.......

I believe that model has a voltage meter and an amperage function as well so it still has some diagnostic value.

LOL, no OBDII, thank goodness. We have a very expensive SnapOn computer diagnostic tool at work I think it has a 60 or 70% success rate. Total hit am miss, car too new car to special, don't have the latest $1000 addition for it, man do I hate the late model computer controlled stuff.

The funny thing is my brother and I discussed how this thing is probably early to mid seventies. So it's high tech compared to the tools I would have used when the car was new.
