I came upon this by google search for carb sink tool and it really intrigued me since the principals used on this cheap home made system is the same as expensive mercury based tools..Here is the site

That is slick!

I have a mercury balancer set (Carb Stix) but this one looks to be more accurate since you eliminate the error in the gauge by balancing the vacuum level of each cylinder to each other instead of just comparing them to each other. Perfect for twins!

Another plus is that you use ATF or any other light oil instead of mercury. Mercury's about as eco-friendly as uranium these days.

Thanks!
