ENGINE DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS
DYNAMIC TIMING METER
SE-4142 (FOR 6.9 Liter Diesel)
The SE-4142 TACH-N-TIMETM from Kent-Moore uses
the latest in microprocessor technology to quickly and
accurately measure fuel injection pump timing.
The pump pulse is picked up by a piezoelectric
transducer that clamps on the No. 1 fuel injection line.
Crankshaft location is picked up with a magnetic probe.
The probe offset is automatically computed by the SE-
Using the pump pulse signal and the crankshaft location
signal, a microprocessor gives a digital display of exact
engine RPM and injection pump timing in degrees.
