Well, now I can't check the amperage because, genius that I am, I forgot I had messed around with the leads on the meter and checked voltage with the positive lead in the wrong hole and blew the 10A fuse. Of course, I can't find a replacement; apparently no one carries them.
Really just frustrated now ... everything is working on the car now, but since I didn't fix anything, I know whatever was wrong is still wrong. Even if I had the ammeter, I know it's not spiking right now because it's not blowing the fuse. Debating whether to disassemble all the wiring and see if there's a visible problem (take the air cleaner back out, etc.), or just drive it around and wait for it to happen again so I can try to isolate it by disconnecting things.
