Re: Fluke 87

On land pretty much any meter can

1. Test the ohms of a motor windings legs to see if they are the same or a coil winding

2. Measure voltage drop

3. If your blowing breakers i generaly dont find big issues with tracking it down

To be honest finding problems with stuff like the position sensors for tilt on and outboard or sterndrive or a fuel sender is simple with and analog meter as

A wacky problem at 1/2 becomes simple to see on the dial
