I purchased a very similar one like Rocket had purchased. Had it over 18 months and used it again recently. I use mine with the Lap Top because i prefer a larger screen.
Once you get the hang of focussing the camera head ( for ideal distance so to have a non distorted view ) it is a very useful tool.

Well I drained out the case and found 4 piston chunks down in there. That endoscope tool is pretty awesome btw, thanks again for the recommendation on that one.

I'll post some pics later. Gotta fish them out now. Fun.

Chunks are good..... have a good look if those chunks match the piston AND if there are any bits missing!!!

Good Fishing!!!
