Any Endoscope will do? - there are tons on amazon and the like. I am not sure how to get it to turn 180 degrees to see the valves. I have never needed to use one.



Or would it need to be something like this: https://www.amazon.ca/Articulating-B...%2C114&sr=8-16



Thanks!

Most cameras come with adapters. Adapters will allow use for side, downward, or upward views. Both of my cameras have adapters.

Hey Folks, quick update. I took the valve cover off and I cannot see anything wrong with the intake/exhaust valves or the cam shafts or the valvetronic shaft.. I have attached a ton of photos of the Cyl7 valves rockers.



I am still waiting for the borescope, no news on that front, it should be arriving on the 3rd of Jan.



I did manually crank the engine over and throughout the whole firing cycle, there was a hissing sound (kind of sounds from the exhaust.) I do not think this is normal since Bank1 did not have the same sound.

Is it just the lighting or do you have a groove in your roller?

Do you have the adapter for your compression tester that allows you to put some compressed air to it? At TDC with compressed air, you should hear something somewhere.
