Guys, according to Zane's N-series hydraulic system troubleshooting article, I need to check my cam follower pin for wear, but I don't know where it's located(!) and have made no progress finding the answer online. Is the cam follower pin the same as the "inner hydraulic lift control rod pin", and where is it? Thanks, and sorry if this is a dumb question.

You ll need to pull your top cover to get at it. Mine was pretty far gone:

Oh, so it is in the top cover. Now I get it. Thanks, Rob. So can you inspect it for wear with the top cover installed, maybe using a mirror?

"So can you inspect it for wear with the top cover installed"

I have replaced several of these. I am not aware of anyway to inspect this without removing the top cover.

Not really, and you will need to remove the top cover to replace it in any case.

Just about all of them are worn, and it should be replaced if there is ANY perceptible wear.

You can reach up in there and feel the pin or use a inspection mirror and flashlight to see the pin through the round dipstick plate.

Technology is getting cheaper everyday and its now easy and affordable to look in hidden spaces. Might even fit this through a bolt hole:

Do you have one like that? Does it work? Reason I ask is that I purchased not that one but a similar one off E-Bay and it worked well for a couple of minutes then it quit and screen says I need to sign up on their site for any additional use. Credit cards accepted of course. I would like to get one that works with no strings attached.

Guessing it came with its own software? Should work fine with any generic webcam software.

I have three, 1 USB microscope (can adjust focus) 1 8mm endoscope/borescope with 3' snake (works OK, no accessories) and one I just got yesterday very similar to the one in the link TOH posted. It has blueish light supposed to be better in dark places, yet to be proven. Bought it because it came with some accessories including a right angle mirror. The scope is OK, but the mirror is useless. Seems to be a piece of aluminum foil tape for a reflective surface.

Any case, they are very useful to look into places you cannot see. Resolution is 640 x 480 so don't be fooled by any Megapixel claims on the cheap ones.

No, I just saw the item on Amazon. I'd say you are the victim of an ebay scam and I'd file a claim.

My doctor gave me a bunch of great images he took of the insides of my intestines via similar but not exactly same as " Might even fit this through a bolt hole:" :)
