Timing light/plug lead Problem

Hi Everyone,
When I use my snap on dial back timing light, the light does not always flash,
could this be a plug lead fault? Or am I right thinking the "inductive clip" that
I put on the plug lead could be faulty?

I read somewhere that it is suppose to miss every other flash?


Cheers dave

Dave, could be wore out. If there is an arrow on the induction clip, make sure it is pointing to the plug. Make sure you have good ground, and move clip away from any other wires, if possible.
