WINONA, Minn. -- Sometimes engines require good old-fashioned physical inspections. Goodson Tools and Supplies has a useful option for engine builders and repair shops during teardowns.

Goodson’s new High-Visibility Green Fluorescent Magnetic Powder makes dry part inspections easier thanks to its extreme visibility. While crack detection powder is not a new trick, the high-visibility formula pops in normal light, and literally glows under a black light, making tracing damage and metal flaws foolproof.

The fluorescent powder is available in 1 lb., 5 lb., and 25 lb. bags and can be order direct from Goodson.
