Bore scope

Guess it is time to look at this poor old 6.0. I am in need of a good used or new bore scope capable of viewing inside the cylinder. I had an injector break off and figure it might be easier to view cylinder before I remove the head. Thanks, Norm

If the injector tip broke off, it went SOMEWHERE, no ifs ands or buts about it. The question that now remains is what is the extent of damage it caused. If it caused piston and cylinder head damage, that you can see with a Snap-On borescope through the injector bore (assuming you already have the injector removed), then it's not financially feasible to even consider repairing it in any manner other than replacing the long block. I will assume the vehicle in question is an '03 version of the 6.0L (or 2004 truck with a 2003 engine), since they seem to be only ones I've heard of experiencing this type of injector failure.

Well you hit the year right on and I do have the injector sitting on my bench. It is not a big piece broke off and most of it is in the oil filter. I was just seeking an easy way out to get it started and maybe use it for a snow plow up here. It has never been fond of getting more than 200 miles away from home anyways. This has been undoubtably the worst vehicle I have ever had and it also qualifies as the biggest pain in my butt. Almost got 160K on it now. Thanks for the input, Norm

Bear in mind you will need a bore scope with a small diameter tip. The injector tip hole is not very big. Harbor freight has a digital one for around $70.00 but I think its tip is too big. Just judgeing by eye.
