I was given an hour meter yesterday, brand new but no instructions. It has a white wire that looks like it possibly goes under the spark plug.. also 1 red wire. Anyone know how it hooks up?

Anyone have an idea how this goes on? I'd like to get it hooked up tonight. I'm thinking the white goes to spark plug, red to a coil wire or something?

Not certain, but my guess is the white goes to a ground, and the red is wound 3 turns around the plug boot.

Good guess. Would you think the red could wind around the wire at the coil? That would make the wire job tidy, ground could go there too.

No, the wires at the coil are primary coil voltage, and don't generate a strong enough signal. Wind around the plug boot.
