Default Sears engine analyzer model 161.216300 - need manual

Hi,

I just got a Sears Engine Analyzer model 161.216300 off Ebay and need a manual. I can get one from Sears for $13 but that is $11.75 more than I paid for it not including shipping! Does anyone have a manual they can copy and email me???????? I need to know how to use all the functions of this unit.

Thanks! Greg

Good luck with that. I did a quick google search and all that came up were people in forums looking for manuals...haha...

Maybe bite the bullet and get one. Then you can scan it and post it online and help everyone else out?

just looked at the one I have, and it's the 161.210400.

Interesting that I bought it last year at an estate auction. This was the original purchaser and it had NEVER BEEN USED. The cables were still rubberbanded together (and the bands had rotted).

I may have been the first person to ever connect it up to a car !!!

here is a pic of the exact model I have:

Does anyone know the era of these devices?

I'd check eBay. Alot of 'good junk' out there. You may find an owners manual for it (if not today, someday). I use eBay more and more in my searching for parts, books and stuff.

I can scan it, but my scanner is "low tech"... an old Umax. It will take quite a while. I have to adjust/crop each page, and then edit/convert/resize each page. Can you email me a fax number?

I connected mine up to my electronic tachometer calibrater and it was not accurate at all... about 20 % off. May be due to age alone.
