hcbph Kent-Moore J35890 Instruction Manual?

My ABS is starting to act up again (light on) on my 86 and does not seem to be the relays this time from what I can tell.
I think I have a chance to get ahold of this tester for a while but apparently does not have the instruction manual with it from what I'm told.
Wondering if there's a download available on it or someone has one they're willing to scan for me? I've been looking online but so far have not found one.

Thanks for any help.

I've got both the info out of the fsm along with the instruction booklet. Not a lot of info so far but I'll be reading them multiple times before I start.
Thanks for the offer.

If I run into issues, I assume you've used it before. Can I post any questions I come up with?

I used it years ago. It's basically step by step instructions that you follow. If you run into any problems let me know.

Well I got it out to use today - no joy. Looks like the unit is DOA. I bought the year warranty on it so now I'm trying to deal with them and either get it repaired or replaced. It won't power up so suspecting something is burnt out internally.
Had good intentions. I did some voltage and checking being I had the well open anyway. I also made a little relay tester and did some checking there too.
I'm not sure as it will take opening up some of the wiring harnesses but if I have traced the wires right, it may be a bad wire that's the cause but won't know for sure till I have some more time to deal with that.
Right now I'm trying to deal with the insurance company on getting the tester repair.

Are you able to check the tester on another vehicle? If you have bad wiring on the car and it won't power the tester up that could be the issue.

Unfortunately according to the only stuff that came with it it's for 86-89 Vettes only. I have an 86 and the only member of the car club with an early C4 so no others available to test it against.
Finally got all the stuff into SquareTrader insurance, after all the hoop jumping I had to do they came back and said they won't cover it cause it wasn't working when received. I've sent a msg back to the seller about returning it. According to the instructions I have, hook it up to the cable for the abs, turn the ignition to the on position and it should power up, which it isn't.

All I can say is "Oh Joy". Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for the help offer.

Can you test the supply wires to the abs for power? Make sure that's not the issue in both cases.

I have not found a specific reference to which wires should be powered on 'key on' and which aren't. Will be checking for continuity etc.
Worst case, you can drive without abs but it is nice to have.

Been in communication with the seller. He sent a rma to return the unit. I really wanted it but it is what it is. I'll keep an eye out for a working unit in the future.

I don't have the fsm in front of me, there might be a wiring diagram. Otherwise a simple test for 12v should tell you if you have power to the module.

I've been digging a little into it. I found one questionable wire, does not seem to ohm but I need more time to get further. Oh well, this is a winter project so no rush. What I'd like to do if it seems bad is make up a new one and just swap it out for a test without unwrapping the harness for the test. I just wonder if I can find replacement ends to match, one is on the relay and the other is on the connector that has 8-10 wires in it and that's got connectors I've not seen before.
