I want to have a look at the cylinder bores on my 235. Does anyone have a borescope they like and would recommend? Some offerings connect to a smart phone. That seems preferable to a dedicated screen of unknown quality.

Thanks - Tommy

I bought a Depstech borescope off Amazon that uses WiFi to your cell phone. It was pretty highly rated and like $35 or close to it. I have yet to use it, just played with it when setting it up on my phone. You do have to download and app to go with it. Picture was pretty clear and it does have LED lights on it. I'll add a link to it if I can find it in my Amazon history.

Yeah the cheap amazon ones work really good. Haven't had good luck connecting mine with wifi to a phone but it works great plugged into a tablet or laptop

I have one of the cheap wi-fi borescopes. I agree it works best with a laptop. I have used it with my phone, but definitely recommend using a laptop. The phone screen is just too dang small.

I use mine on my iPad. Works great for a $30 borescope.
