No, I never did.
A good friend of mine who owns the local electronics shop I deal with did the
installation and billed me $195. All I can tell you is that the camera is an
extremely lo lux camera, with a ring of LEDs surrounding the lens. You can see
the engine in total darkness but the photo in my post is with the ER lights on & is
He also fabricated an "L" shape bracket that the camera is mounted to.* A wing
nut allows me to point and secure it in almost any direction as it is not
controllable from the panel.
Since the camera is a black & white picture only, I put diapers in strategic
locations (ie: oil pan, fuel filter, etc) which allows me to see a contrast much
faster than waiting for a puddle to get deep enough to attract my attention.
Though, I will be the first to admit that the camera is no substitute for an actual
inspection of the ER, I can tell you it's just like "Preparation H". Over time (a
cruise) it really reduces the "pucker factor."
