TB Manometer

I did a search but couldn't find the article that described the construction of the home built manometer for synchronizing the throttle bodies. It used oil in the tubing.
Any help in finding the url appreciated.

I made my own back when I had my ZR-7S. It's a lot more involved for a four but still not that hard. I replumbed it for the DL and it worked like a charm. I use rubbing alcohol instead of water or ATF so if it gets sucked into the TBs, it will just mix with the gas and burn away. The advantage of ATF, though, is that it moves a little slower so you don't get the jittery effect.
