Re: stupid human tricks (DETECTING VACUUM LEAKS)
A while back I purchased a ultrasonic vacuum leak detector from Sears.
Works like a charm; can even use it to find small windshield or window
seal water or air leaks.

Bryan Gunn suggests:
Go to Wal-Mart or equvalent and spend $15 on a Mity-Vac. Then you can test
each vacuum line individually and can track down leaks lickety-split. Plus
it's a really usefull tool to have anyway.

Great theory, problem is, one would have to disconnect what, forty or fifty
vacuum lines, some *very* hard to reach, to do this. I'd definitely break
at least four of them - and I wouldn't know if my reconnections were going
to be new problems. I am going to use propane this W/E - I like the
pinpoint aim I can get with a tiny flow (it's windy here right now, added
safety factor) >>
