Default Tech Tip

Here's a tech tip I pinched from an oldtimer friend. It makes sense ...

I know this is a trick from the past but it is useful when electrical "gremlins" are about....
Find an old AM transistor radio, tune it to any part of the reception band where a station cannot be heard, turn the volume up and then bring it close to each HT lead in turn while the engine is idling/revving at a speed consistent with when the hesitation is apparent and listen for pronounced clicks - this will indicate possible insulation/conductor breakdowns in the lead(s) where the clicking is loudest.

Real men drive a 6 speed manual.
