Re: help find vacuum leak?/stupid human tricks revisited

Hearing, I guess. The point is to cause the vacuum leak to suck in
something that is fuel-like. Causes the engine to increase speed.
So what you do is apply the stream of *unlit* propane, starting on a very
low setting, to suspected/potential vacuum leak points. Allow enough time
to let the propane clear between test areas. I guess if you don't find
anything, turn up the propane flow a bit.
Also to get a feel for what it will sound like when you find the leak, just
let some get sucked into the intake.
Did I forget anything?
