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)   >>
