Mechanic's Quick Reference Chart

Fool Pressure Chart (For those who refuse to use a pressure gauge)
Due to the fact that most technicians do not want to take the time to correctly test the fuel pressure, we have developed the following...
With the engine running, either push the schrader valve in or loosen the fuel line THEN IF:
Fuel does not come out of the test area
Pressure is approx 0 psi
Fuel hits the hood insulation
Pressure is 5 - 8 psi
Fuel squirts over the fender
Pressure is 10-15 psi
Fuel splashes off the fender onto the hood insulation and into the next repair bay
Pressure is 25-30 psi
Fuel squirts to the garage roof, all over the car, including the shop owner
Pressure is 30-50 psi

Vacuum Test "Rule of Thumb"
Put thumb on vacuum hose leading to direct engine vacuum.
Don't feel anything
Change thumbs and re-test
Still don't feel anything
Vacuum is very low to none
Hose has slight suction
1" to 5"
Suction causes skin to wrinkle
5" to 8"
Suction turns thumb blue
8" to 10"
Suction creates hickey on thumb
10" to 12"
Suction creates pain
18" to 20"
Suction will not release and begins to move toward index finger
20" to 25"

"Idio-Illumination" Chart
With the vehicle prepped and ready to be tested, hook the negative lead of the test light to a good ground and proceed with testing.
The bulb DOES NOT light
The voltage is 0 - 1 volt
The bulb MIGHT be glowing
The voltage is 1 - 3 volts
The bulb BARELY GLOWS (or there is a reflection from the overhead lights)
The voltage is 3 - 5 volts
The bulb GLOWS MUCH BRIGHTER than #2, but only a little brighter than #3
The voltage is 5 - 7 volts
The bulb GLOWS WITH THE SAME INTENSITY AS A BALD HEAD ON A SUNNY DAY
The voltage is 7 - 9 volts
The bulb GLOWS BRIGHTLY and is GAINING IN INTENSITY
The voltage is 9 - 11 volts
The bulb is ALMOST BRIGHT ENOUGH TO READ BY
The voltage is 11 - 13 volts
The bulb is BRIGHT ENOUGH that you still see a spot when you look away
The voltage is 13 - 15 volts
The bulb SHINES WITH THE INTENSITY OF A HALOGEN HEADLAMP
The voltage is 15 - 17 volts
The bulb is so bright that it MAY BE A SIGN FROM GOD
The voltage is 17 - 19 volts
The bulb flashed with the INTENSITY OF A MINOLTA FLASH POINTED 3 FEET FROM YOUR FACE
The voltage is 20 to 40,000 volts (Secondary Ignition)

Ignition Voltage Output Test
Scopes may be inaccessible from time to time, so we at "Bubba's Garage" have come up with this here test for Ignition Output:
Hold medium wrench in one hand, Sears wrench preferred for accuracy of test 'cause other smooth wrenches are too slick for throwin'!
With engine runnin', grab hold of the plug end of an ignition cable with the other hand and hold on tight!
This will more than likely cause you to throw wrench! KV output is based on how far the wrench wuz thrown!
10 feet
approx. 10,000 volts
20 feet
approx. 15,000 volts
30 feet
approx. 25,000 volts
Over 30 feet
Caution! Must be one of them new dis-is-it ignition systems, use bigger wrench and retest.
WARNING! No side effects have been reported due to testing at this time
