    Well that's frightening. We always learned it as Bad Beef Rots Our Young Guts But Vegetables Go Well lol.

    I'm looking forward to you making a bunch of these and passing them out around here next Christmas :toothy1:

    Great info! I did learn "the phrase" a few decades back LOL.
    For the blue resistor Im seeing
    Brown(1st band 1)
    Black(2nd band 0)
    Black(multiplier 1 ohm)

    I get 9.95 ohms to 10.05 if me math is right
    Gold(+ or - 5%)

      that looks like an OTC 3385 ......I was actually thinking of getting one like that but I think it does way more than the miller tool and is a lot more complex.

      Thanks.

      I did find the first link on my search and those numbers match the ones in your second link...

      They do seem reasonable, but I would like to make sure that we get good info, not just what someone may have just thrown up on the net... (Like I'm a french model...)

      It would be nice to have some way to confirm the readings for the resistors...

      I used to have one of the Miller testers, but it disappeared years ago. Now I use a resistor substitution (decade) box instead. You just flip switches until it adds up to the resistance you want. It's not limited to certain gauges and it can substitute for any sensor even mass airflow. This Elenco brand costs less than $30 and works great.

      I agree on the 100% confirmation and is needed.

      I thought it was just nice to have a second site to help out, that actually matched the first site.

      yes, but what if one guy got it from the other and the first one is not accurate??

      However those are the numbers that we are seeing, so that's a good sign that if they aren't exact, they are pretty close...

      But it would be nice to get the proper info out there for sure...

      I wonder if we took a picture of them to the electronic store, if a good knowledgeable employee could match them up with new ones for us, then we would know from the ratings on the packages, especially if the marks match ours exactly....

      Ok easy way to remember the color codes Bad boys only rape young girls but violet gives willingly. Bet they do not teach that memory aid any more. I get 10. 23 and 74 ohms also with 5 percent tolerance. Did USAF avionics for over 20 years so yes they are right.

        We've cracked the code!!!

        75
        22
        10

        Ohm resistors for the Miller tool!!!


        That's why FABO is the leading Mopar forum on the net.... :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

        Except that's wrong, LOL

        Black ...brown...RED...ORANGE....yellow

        Yes, it's politically incorrect, but I still remember, vaguely, "that day in class' I guess that's because as a youngster I had so much trouble figuring out how to remember it otherwise. The (free, given tome) 1954 ARRL handbook does not have such cute little helper phrases inside!!!

        I just want to say, Thank You Del!
        I'm 55 and my father taught me that one about 35 years ago.
        He, too, got it in the military about 8 or 10 years before you did, I guess.
        I haven't heard it in many years.
        Again, thank you.
