Re: Quattro Digest V3 #89


Just unplug the wire that leads from the coil to the distributor cap.  With
this removed, the engine will not fire.  If you want to be extra sure,
remove the oil filler cap.  Without the seal, the engine will not run (it's
the fuel injection set-up that requires the engine to be sealed.)
