Self Test Spade terminal size

Just wondering if anyone knows the exact size of the spade terminal you must use to undertake the engine self test precedure.
I could only find 6.3mm terminals in my shed but they were too big.

3mm wire should fit nicely, or even better use the pointy end on a pen light voltage tester.

Hmm but seriously, why go to the effort of buying some connectors which are about $6 a packet when you only ever need to check it once in a blue moon.

Well I actually plan to make up a wire, ie solder the alligator clip to one end and a spade terminal to the other and keep it so I can check the timing at every service interval.
