Strobe Timing Light
« on: August 13, 2023, 12:54:32 PM »
My Sun strobe timing light has given up the ghost!  :'(

Any recommendations for a replacement - (I use one on my cars as well...) ?

Not a recommendation just one to avoid.

I have a Clarke so called High Beam Timing Light model CHBTL1 it is a powered type that I run off a slave car battery.

It works but the leads are quite short, it would probably be useless outside as it's not really that bright, it's ok in my garage.

Yes, I remember years ago having one that wasn't even powered - absolute rubbish! Being able to see the light is fairly important!!
