Humber build quality

Hmmm, yes but who on earth has one of them? Like your thinking though.

In the first instance I've emailed them to ask what the underside will have been treated with in the manufacturing process. Let's see shall we.

What year manufacture was yours with bare underneath?

Ask Humber?
Given the serial number or date of manufacture I expect they will be able to tell you the build details or at least their policies in force at the time.
It would be good to hear their comments on this matter!

Then buy one of these USB endoscopes 5M Mini USB Borescope Endoscope Waterproof Inspection Snake Tube Camera UK | eBay
and stick it up yer drain hole!

Me! One of these:-

Handheld Video Optic Inspection Tool with LCD Display & Recording | Maplin

Invaluable for inspecting the inside of cylinders/boat hulls etc without dismantling. It's cheaper than a gasket set.

Colcreate, that's ace, 7.96, bargain. Strap it to some strong bendy stuff to get the angle.

Nos, be handy if you were near.

I bought one last year, they are sort of OK and should be good enough for looking up yer drain, nose, mouth etc. Yes tried all that and then took it out to the workshop and had a look inside an engine. The led light is dimmable but a bit crap the resolution is as adequate. For the price they are a no brainer. I've threaded cctv cables through a wall void recently which I just couldn't have done with out it. They can hold a slight bend but are not very stiff.
