We were trained how to use them in high school automotive class. If I remember correctly they are used to find magnetic shorts or opens in starter armatures.

We used these in electric shop class with a hack saw blade.……. NEVER used a growler once I was out of high school shop class.

Could use a test light and a set of jumper cables connected to a battery and the armature....

Same here because at the time all the parts houses had the machines that you mounted the gen , starter or alternator in and ran them. No need for disassembly.

In truth, a growler. The first time I saw one, as a teen-ager, the starter in my car had packed up. My Dad's uncle, who had an electric motor rebuilding shop, told me to come over to his house and then remove the starter. We tore the starter apart and then went to a place he knew that rebuilt automotive starters and generators. They used a growler to ascertain that the armature was faulty and got one from the far back room for us. We reassembled the starter and I re-installed it.

The car was a '53 Merc. For those of you who don't go back that far, the engine was a flathead. The car was about five years old at the time.
