..which are generally more accurate than va gages. Get them at any motorcycle shop for like 50-100 bucks. But do the adjustment outdoors, no kids around, in the open as a tiny amount of the mercury vapors will pass through the exhaust. Not good to breathe!!! Basically a tube connects to each cylinder's TB and then a vacuum is created above the mercury which then rises up rigid tubes. The whole thing is like 2 feet high and can hang from a hood bracket.
