Vibration idling or on the road ?

On the road would be tire balance or out of round. Idling could be any number of things that cause a miss-fire.

The hand sign must be a west coast thing because I have no clue what that position would indicate.

Think Ogre Think! I've given you a ton of hints. I will say this. Some of the younger guys may not have experienced this type of procedure as it has changed and typically a front end repairman doesn't do it. At the places I worked at the front end repairman was the guy who did it.

I will say this, if I have to explain the answer you'll say " Yeah I can see that"
