I just picked up a timing light with a dial. I needed one anyways, let's see if they let me return the old one!
I also bought a new vacuum gauge. I've seen the old one around here hundreds of times, but it's hiding on me now and a new one was only 15 bucks.
I stuck the vac gauge on there at idle, out of gear. I fired it up, and at first it fluctuated from 14-15 in-hg, but soon leveled off at 15 in-hg with a little needle shake.
