Re: toys


On the first one, you're looking at either a barometer or a pitot (sp?)
to determine either pressure or velocity.

On the second one, that's easy.
Find your sniffer tube, attach hose, and connect to a vaccuum/fuel
pressure guage.  Read the pressure.  Compare to a known good reference. 
Alternatively, if you are working on a car which has no sniffer tube,
pull the oxygen sensor, make a hose fitting which will screw in, attach a
hose and do as above.
