kent - i was going to comp check it today. from what i can find online as
far as procedure [bentley is in the mail..]:
warm up engine, pull all plugs, pull fuel pump fuse, install gauge and cycle
engine 5 or 6 times. repeat for all cyl's. i'm ASSUMING that its ok to just
disconnect each coil plug ? any idea if they have to be grounded, like in
the old cars, or if the ignition should be disco'd upstream?
