Yep, but that doesn't mean the valve is actually sealing/opening! 
And that doesn't help much with the drain valve.

Looks like I have other problems as well- the ISV doesn't open up 
with the ignition on, as it should.  Valve's fine(7-8 ohms, 
opens+closes ok with external supply), 12v supply is OK(that rules 
out the fuse), ground is suspicious.  I cleaned the twin grounds on 
the intake side of the engine, but curiously, I get a tenth of a volt 
between engine ground and the ground side of the ISV connector.  I 
forget, is the valve return-side switched like the injectors?

And of course, I can't find my electrics volume of the Bentley set...
