I had to meet with a client to test if my flare stack ignitor controller worked. I used a spark plug and coil for testing. One after another, I started to play with the pulse pattern to monitor energy usage vs spark power. I then recognized tones in the spark. The sound/music you hear is coming from the plug's spark at controlled frequencies from my circuit.
I modified my code and made the spark plug sing. I tried to make it play twinkle twinkle, but the tuning is off :)
1982 Honda Odyssey FL250
Walk-around of the 1982 FL250 Honda Odyssey. It hasn't been running in 17
years! It was originally left because it had lost spark. So first we tried
new coils on it with no success, we then tried another CDI module still
with no success. Eventually it came down the alternator, so we pulled of
the starter and one of the M5 nuts securing the starter cup to the rotor
was missing, this nut was sucked into the rotor magnets and chewed the hell
out of one of the stator coils. We replaced this coil and presto! It threw
a 1 inch long spark! The only other thing it needed was a full clean out of
the fuel system because everything was blocked with stale fuel.
Ever Wonder How a Spark Plug Heat System Works? Check this video out!
NGK Spark plugs are available in a variety of heat ranges to work in any
stock or modified engine. NKG has a simple heat range system, 2 is the
hottest 12 is the coldest. The heat range actually has nothing to do with
how hot the plug fires, it is really a measurement how much heat is left at
or removed from the tip of the spark plug. Both a hot and cool spark plugs
require the same sparking voltage. This video will show you the difference
between a hot and cold spark plug, as well as temperature specifications.
