    Shopping For A Borescope/Endoscope.....Recommendations???

    I'm looking for a decent bore scope so I don't need to remove heads and get instant piston wash pics. Not sure what to get I thought I would put it out here to see if anyone is using or have any recommendations. I'm thinking of a basic 2.4" LCD model, you can get 3.5" some with record to SD not sure if that's overkill though.

    This is what I'm looking at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Borescope-En...item4ab7e382af

    Not a bad price. I'm leaning toward getting an otoscope for the same purpose. Only $27 at Amazon.com

    Anyone ever use one of those cheap USB endoscopes that you see for like $20 on fleabay that you have to hook to your PC? Like a tiny webcam on a long cord...

    I wonder how good the picture would be if used down a spark plug hole or something.

    Cheers!

    I ended up getting this type only 19 bucks shipped. http://www.ebay.com/itm/330646456927...84.m1497.l2649

    Just going to test this first its lower risk. I'll post up some sample videos when I get it, seems better res than the ones with built in LCD but you need a laptop to view which isn't really a problem. I don't think those otoscopes are very good for engines, I tried one ages ago they don't go right in the bore and you have to get your face nice and close to the engine to see anything. Wouldn't want to do that with a hot engine
