The engine doesn't need to be running with the MAC11/MAC12D/MAC14 cars.  Just 
stick a fuse in the top of the fuel pump relay and switch on the ignition.  The 
pump and the 'warm up regulator' heater run after four seconds.

You actually get a _better_ view of system pressure - the pointer is all over 
the place when the engine is trying to run.
