I guess the problem really comes down to when is a cigar actually a cigar, doesn't it? In the case of fully electronically controlled, interfaced and fired engine systems - you have to actually spark it up (so to speak) to find out. In my case, I know in my heart that a long and fairly deep hand check though the electrical loom is going to consume a large part of the coming summer if I want to eliminate the basic loom from future bug hunts down the road. I suppose that is to be expected given the 11 or so years my particular machine has been on the road. In fact, I think I can safely comment that it will be the challenge in the coming years for anyone who haunts the 'Utility Classic' end of the general automotive market on pretty much any make or model.
