Monitor Chassis Yoke Measurements

To enable you to match a chassis to a yoke you will need to have two types of meter,a standard multimeter for the resistance and an lcr/inductance meter for the inductance

Guessing yoke readings is not a good thing,an unmatched chassis will fry the horizontal output stage and in the extreme could kill the yoke

Lcr meters are always available on ebay at very reasonable prices

You need to read both resistance and inductance of each of the two parts of the yoke,vertical and horizontal.
Normally you find red and blue is the horizontal coil,green and yellow the vertical

Therefore you would set the multimeter to ohms and place one probe to the red and the other probe to the blue to give horizontal resistance and so on.
