James,

For the leakdown tester it helps to get a piece of tubing (can be any material, I happened to use aluminum because I had it handy) and cut it about 5" long and slide it over the 14mm end of the hose so the connector protrudes. This will allow you to turn the tubing to fit it into the spark plug hole, easier than trying to spin the hose between your palms to get it seated. Don't make it TOO long or you won't be able to get it in the hole when the engine is in the car.

The trick setup is to get a HAZET 3428. . .if you are doing this a lot.
