We can walk you thru it, so anytime you're ready just yank it out.
Excellent suggestion. Might as well learn now what needs to be learned sooner or later. Pretty soon, this thread is gonna need a whole new title...

LOL! You know what the worse part is? When all is said and done, those bolts will be right in front of my face, right where they've been all along. A real much ado about nothin'...

I just picked it up 30 minutes ago. Didn't get to test it out in the truck yet (raining outside), but indoors, the image is not bad. Will have to check out how good it is when connected to a computer. I used the 25% off coupon for Easter Sunday (good for today only) and paid $195 and change altogether.

I will try the boroscope first and post back results. If that proves fruitless, I'll tackle the distributor next.

Thanks pugsy!
