- Dyno (motor test and check)
Here this will help,
For the money the APS Dyno charger will charge batteries, run a comm lathe and give you rpm and amp draw data.
For a comm lathe I suggest a Hudy, Cobra or Orion lathe but I would suggest you get someone who has done more than 50 comm cuts to show you how to do it right....You will be happy you did. I destroyed 15 comms and sold the lathe because I thought it was the problem...come to find out it was all me...
Hoep this helps.
Here is couple of links.
if you get this you will need to buy one of these to go with it.
this is what I use.
Good suggestion Buy once and hurt only once....
You can check Ebay for deals but I have been finding that there are more crooks on there than real deal makers.
Just my $0.02
