Sorry, probably a dumb question...I am building the Reduction kit...while not to the point of doing resistance readings yet, reading ahead in the manual, I am confused as to what "OL" means as a resistance reading?
Thanks

"OL" means over the limit.  Meters can only read up to a finite limit for resistance, and if there's a high DC resistance with a capacitor across it, that job becomes even more difficult.
