playing with my new iPhone-compatible endoscope, looking for my top drain to inspect it, and I see this. Is this the infamous top pump, or one of the hydraulic cylinders? the field of view of the endoscope is pretty small and it's tough to manipulate, so I'm having a hard time locating landmarks.

At a guess I would say they must be the hydraulic lines for the pump but an expert will no doubt clarify

Yes I think it's the flux capacitor for the hyper drive :rofl:

I think that the code on the label PR365 is the hydraulic pump - but no doubt Mike DLV will be along to confirm :D

It's a hydraulic ram and it's two pressure hoses. You shouldn't be able to see the pump as it's in a housing.
