Default Possible a good tool to have working on boats

Passing this on as I am looking into this tool. They have 3 different versions

IMO I think it would be good for testing fuel injectors while running and watching the graph among other findings for engine noises.

So what do you think ?

They can be handy, but I think you would find a scan tool more useful. I am not sure what is needed for your 1100's, but I have liked Diacom in the past.

I had the chassis ear by steelman never really warmed up to it ,but that unit for 75$ has some potential. I have spare smartphones that already serve photo and video shop duty so..

^^^^^ and the same goes for the scan tool but I would not go without one. Many years ago an employee dropped a complete DDT, cables & cartridges straight down into the lake.

I have all kinds of stethoscopes and the best one for your money is a real quality doctors stethoscopes. Cost under a 100 and has made me at least 10 k over the years. Just saying.

If you work on boats and do lakes calls this tool could be very useful. What I really want is a graph comparison to freeze all them to review especially for fuel injector operation while running.

^^^^^ And with very long ape like arms to - I agree 100 % ^^^^^ - man at 6'3 - 250 it is getting harder and harder to fit anywhere on these boats. I do not bend like I use to. It gets old bench pressing your own weight deep inside these engine compartments just to get out of them.

Be good cheap alternative to finding chassis / bearing noises while road testing.

Thanks.
