Tracer Products has developed the Cobra-6, an ultra-slim, 38-inch-long multipurpose borescope featuring interchangeable blue- and white-light LED flashlights. The Cobra-6 is designed to enable technicians to inspect and leak-check hard-to-see components — such as pistons, intake valves, A/C evaporators, fuel systems, radiators and EVAP systems — without expensive disassembly.

The blue-light flashlight is suited for fluorescent leak detection and detecting surface flaws, while the white-light flashlight is intended for component inspection. A press-fit coupler facilitates quick, easy attachment of the flashlights to the borescope. The Cobra-6 also features a flexible 38-inch, 6mm shaft designed to reach deep inside narrow recesses.

A clip-on, angled inspection mirror provides the added capability to detect flaws normally hidden from view. Also included are three “AA” alkaline batteries that power each flashlight; fluorescence-enhancing glasses, for use with the blue-light flashlight and fluorescent leak detection dyes; and a plastic carrying case with a foam insert. Dyes are sold separately.
