    Of Course It Has To Happen To Me!

    Sweet Lord! Why?.......

    Please tell me Im not as phucked as I think I am!

    I am on working on THE LAST valve putting the LAST cotter in with the same precaution as I did all, knowing my luck, and I swear it jumped OUT of the small pliers and I think landed on one of the oil hole thingies!

    I did not even know those were there if not I would have taken the necessary precautions and put something over them or who knows.

    Now what the hell am I to do now?

    I think so, I have looked all over the place and have not found it. It kinda jumped in the direction where the hole is. I had to take out the other cotter compress the spring again to see if it was under it but nothing. Then I noticed the oil return hole right there

    I tried putting a small magnet through but it did not fit far enough, only about 1/4" so...

    And nothing will happen IF it did actually fall down the hole? No damage can result of this? Or is the material not strong enough to cause damage?

    I think he's talking about the holes in the head that oil drains back into the engine. a hardened valve lock isn't anything you can have roaming around in the engine. If you think it stopped in the hole but your magnet won't go in the hole, put a 16 penny nail on the magnet and ease that down in the hole to see if it will pick it up. DON'T drop the nail!!! Also look around the valve springs very closely, there is a couple of spots close to the side of the head that the keepers can hang.
