Checking EZ lube seals with an Endoscope?

I have an endoscope that connects to my phone or tablet and am wondering if it might be possible to use it while using the EZ lube function? I believe there are a few holes that might be usable but I am not familiar with the drum setup on these axles.
I cant check yet myself as we still have a couple feet of snow on the ground and our 21 is in a storage compound. My thought is to use the EZ lube system and then check with the endoscope to make sure that the seal is still intact and not leaking.

Not going to work. The geometry of the parts doesn't allow any room to use your scope. I've used mine for routing cables through camper interiors, though - and it's proved quite handy!


On the other hand, wifey had a big frown when I showed it to her and explained it was for home colonoscopy use.............

Why Jim? I would assume you are socially isolating. Do you think you are hot-headed?

On another note, it Is beginning to look more and more like we may not be able to meet up near Gettysburg as we discussed. But still hoping things will change for the better as quickly as things went downhill.
