Man, I picked up that Mitivac kit at Harbor Freight for 29.99 a few weeks ago... I don't know how I made all the repairs I did without it.. you should look into that if you don't have one. Well worth the cost when you consider everything it does. when my leg heals properly, I'll get underneath the car again to have a look at that VSV underneath. Let me know if you find anything on your end.
