    If it were me, I would relocate it so it wouldn't read, but have one plugged in and grounded.

    It really dont matter at all but why gear to gear! Reason i ask is i cant recall the last time i had to replace a three piece set! They dont give any trouble after they dropped the old single roller, fiber coated cam gear years ago, and beefed up the new set to steel, double roller, even on high performance engines. Did you degree the cam? Just curious, that's all.
