I am not familiar with this tool, does it display waveform like an oscilloscope ?

I have also read a forum thread where the XJ owner had the Dealership set the synchronization correctly with the DRB-III scan tool, but when tightening down the clamp, the crank sensor assembly would physically rotate slightly throwing the synch off again.
