Leaf-Blower Supercharging a 1978 Chevrolet Monza Spyder! - Roadkill Episode 16
On this episode of Roadkill, it's fun with Leaf Blowers. Experts on the
Internet said it would never work. That's never stopped Freiburger and
Finnegan, and this time on Roadkill the guys put the theory to the test:
can hardware-store leaf blowers supercharge an engine and make power? Step
one was buying a '78 Monza Spyder with a 305 V8 and a four-speed stick.
Step two was to take it to the shop of HOT ROD Drag Week racer Jeff Lutz to
tune it up, swap the engine to a 350, Dyno test it with five leaf
blowers, and do a whole bunch of needless burnouts. Step three was to drive
the Monza to Willmington, Ohio, for the East Coast Timing Association's
Ohio Mile event, a standing-mile race where they'd find out if leaf-blower
power adds up to more speed in the real world. The outcome? Who really
cares? Because on Roadkill, it's always about the adventure. And more
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Small Engine Repair: How to test the Ignition Switch or Kill Switch on a Honda GC 190
**Always follow the instructions in your repair manual when doing repair or
maintenance work on Outdoor Power Equipment. Manuals can be found at the
In this video I show you haw to use a ohm meter to test the ignition switch
in a Honda GC 190. The ignition switch is a simple on/off switch that
connects to the ignition coil and engine ground. When the ignition switch
is in the ON position the switch is open and does not allow current to flow
through the switch. When the ignition switch is in the OFF position the
switch is closed and allows current to flow from the ignition system
through the ignition switch, than to ground. This grounds out the ignition
system and prevents spark at the spark plug, thus shutting down the engine.
An ohm meter is used to test the ignition switch for continuity. When the
switch is open, than no current can flow through the switch and the ohm
meter will read infinity, which means infinite resistance. When the switch
is closed or in the OFF position current will flow through the switch. The
amount of resistance created by the switch in the OFF position should be
insignificant, so the meter should show zero resistance. If you do get some
resistance when measuring the ignition switch in the OFF position, than
check the connections for your meter leads and the ground for the ignition
switch, or the contacts within the switch can cause a high resistance
reading. If the contacts in the switch are bad, than replace the switch.
Thanks for watching!
How to diagnose a bad starter, ignition, neutral safety switch!
The re are 3 wires or electrodes on all starters. One is the large bolt
that is attached to the main positive battery cable. One is the small wire
that is sometimes purple that is attached to the ignition switch "key". And
one is just a copper wire or electrode that supplies a ground/power to the
starter from the solenoid.
