I was on the fence until I went to a couple Roadshows ( if anyone has a chance to see on PLEASE do so ) and it really opened my eyes . TS will be bringing in the Robinair pump T-15300. Eliminates guess work like you said and the uses are endless .

I bought one but did not use it as much as I should have until I watched the demonstration a couple years ago at the convention. Now I use it regularly and the more you use it the easier and quicker it is. The "Vacuum Test Guides" provided by Sonnax have been a big plus is its ease of use. The only drawback, if you can call it one, is that you have to clean and assemble the VB dry, vacuum test it, and them disassemble it to ream the bores, then re-clean and reassemble. But the time spent is saved in less headaches.

The last roadshow I went to Randall was checking checkball capsules , holy smokes do they leak . You can check Honda shaft bushings and now solenoids . Sonnax has some manifolds to check ZF solenoids .

A way better method of checking honda shaft bushing wear than the old method that i would use which would be with a piece of scotch office tape like ATRA has on the rebuild procedure book.

check with your sales rep on the test stand price , remember you also have to buy a vacuum pump . It will be a great investment .
