That little Hondas looking good ese.
I put a multimeter on the condenser; zero ohms. From the looks of it, it very well could be the original condenser from 43 years ago.
My understanding was that when switched to the ohms setting, a multimeter uses battery power to force current through the circuit, and the resistance should increase as the capacitor charges. If it never rises from zero, it's not charging. Is this not correct?Probably is, but ohms is a measure of resistance and you are dealing with a capacitor :| A capacitor (which is probably made out of mostly paper) acts like a little tiny solid state battery, it holds an electrical charge up to but not exceeding it's threshold capacity hence the name capacitor and then it releases that electrical charge all at once or as needed. Measuring its resistance is not going to tell you much, it would be like measuring the resistance in a battery to see if it will hold a charge, you might get a reading but it means little to nothing to testing that component.
