Carburetor 1The trend had already been set when investigating and repairing people: Just go inside to see what is wrong.

And years ago there was already a rust collector who had scored an endoscope from rejected hospital supplies. Such a thing that you slide in through natural or non-natural body openings to have a look around.

That equipment has also found its way into the garage world. Because when you can make a diagnosis by, for example, pulling the cylinder head off instead of on the receipt…

That saves time.

And money.

AUDIWhen at a certain point the daily classic showed some quibbles, it was too cold in our own garage and the garage mechanic we usually visit when the setting of a Real Garage was needed was too busy during the holidays ...

Then we decided to commit adultery and to stop by the local garage where our neighbors maintain their modern cars.

The number of screens in the workplace stood out.

The start-up problems were largely caused by a problem in the best-complicated Keihin carburetor. But the garage owner suspected other malheur. He completed his checklist and took his endoscope. That was not one from old hospital files or an 86 euro copy of the Praxis with an 10 mm thick head and hose. This endoscope was a flexible 6 mm thick viewing rod with lighting and a forward and backward camera ... It goes through the smallest holes. And it costs around 10 x as much as such a sink from the Praxis.

EndoscopeAnd the definitive problem turned out to be a wrong valve. That gave leakage loss with a warm engine ...

And the garage mechanic? He turned out to have nothing at all with classics. But after his first endearment when he found a carburetor under the air filter, he was still captivated by classical technology.

The combination between classical technology and modern tools turned out to be a happy marriage.
