Exclamation Vacuum Leak Detector

thought I would share this with y'all, something I have used for many years
had a idle problem with the Harley, found the throttle stem leaking

I use this instead of water or carb/choke cleaner, you don't need that stuff on a chrome engine, if not gotten up quickly and completely it will leave a yellow spot with dirt in it.
You can spray water and if you have a leak the idle will die
carb cleaner will raise the idle at the leak

the propane will bump the idle up and it's easy to pin point the problem

I like to use a dwell meter set on low RPM, and when you get to the leak the needle will jump, sometimes it's hard to hear a slight RPM increase

For Those Who Fought For It...
