    How to get dropped parts from under the engine

    My wet/dry shop vac works best. Has the long, thin end of it I can get beneath the engine and get all the screws, bolts, sockets and even spark plugs I have dropped and then rolled under the engine.

    If the parts or tools aren't essential then go for a ride. Everything bounces around and ends up sitting near the siphon / bulge pick up. Otherwise use a magnet on a telescoping handle. Or magnetic screwdriver. Wish you luck!

    I usually lift the front of the ski, whether it is ion a stand or a trailer, and then stick a running hose in front of the gas tank and let the water push whatever it is to the midwall. I can usually get it with other means, but have had to do this once. I have also seen people use compressed air to do the same thing.

    Ya know, , , Why not attach some of that self adhesive magnet tape on the midwall? That way as soon as you ride and the stuff slides back, It'll stay there
