Default Ssnapon

Would anyone have the operating instructions for a Snapon Model No 926 Multimeter? Thanks,
Bob

This is back a while, but might be worth a try. Be careful of some of the "manual download sites" they are basically malware. This was posted in 2015.

"A friend of my gave me his old Snap-On MT926 multi meter but there isn't a manual, and he has forgotten how to use it. I have looked on the net and not found what I am looking for. I will call Snap on but I think they may not support it any more."

"I called Snap-on and they emailed me a copy of the manual no issues, so I guess that my belief that they didn't have it was wrong. When the Internet works it's a wonderful thing, but there are plenty of scammers out there."

Looks like your basic dwell-tach meter. Connect the black to ground and the yellow
to the distributor to coil lead and it should work. For ohms clip the two lead together
zero the needle and your good to go.

It looks like it has a tachometer function too (the "1200" and "6000" postions on the far right knob). I have one kinda like it, only it's a Aacron. That one has a separate lead that clips on a spark plug wire when using the tachometer functions. Do you have that lead (or a place for one)? I think that one is a little newer than mine. Did you see it has a position for 5 cylinder engines? The only 5 cylinder gas engine I can think of is the one they put in GM pickups a while ago. If it's that new, they may have figured out a way to get the RPM by hooking up one of the leads to the primary side of the coil.

There were at least ten cars with five cylinder engines.

I have one of those. I will look and see if I still have the manual for it. I have had the meter since the '70's. I worked as a Professional mechanic all my life. I have not seen the manual in years, but I will look when I go out to the shop later today. for dwell and tach functions , the black goes to ground and the other lead goes to the coil.

Yeah, but like I said, they are ALL post 1976, which makes them newer cars. I should also point out that the Mercedes was a diesel, which has little need for a dwell meter or ignition signaled tachometer. Eliminate that one, and they are all 1980's and later.The only legitimate 5 cylinder car that I can think of from back in the day was a Adams-Farwell made in 1905 and 1906 in Iowa. The deluxe models were 5 cylinder (their cheaper line had 3) and they were rotary engines (like on a Sopwith Camel).

KINNER made a bunch of five cylinder radials in the late '20s and the '30s, found powering all sorts of popular flying flivvers. DD

Again, all kinds of 5 cylinder radials in airplanes; none in a car. The Adams-Farwell had a ROTARY engine. Look it up. Actually, you should, it is an amazingly weird machine.

My only point was that RADIALS and ROTARY engines are two completely different animals, even though they both are ROUND. DD

I am still going through my stuff ( see what you got me doing now lol. ) I may not have it any more, If I find it I can make a copy and mail it to you. I will know tomorrow for sure whether or not I still have it.---Jim

Teltruck, I have finished going through all my toolboxes and file cabinets. I have not come up with the owners manual. I must have lost it over the years changing jobs and moving. I see you say you are good to go. If I do come across it, I will let you know. sorry I could not be of much help.---Jim
