Branch tube studs, better off with out.

If you dropped a branch tube stud in your block, and tried fishing it out with a coat hanger and magnet with no luck, and reassembled the complete top end to running condition, which way would you try to fish it back out.

Hint - and you THINK it fell in between the block and aluminum tranny housing.

A- Through oil pan
B- Alumininum plate on back side of block by taking tranny off
C- Back through the top were you THINK you dropped it, with a scope and magnet
D- None of the above answer provided....your course of action explained in detail
E- Screw it, its only a 3/4 inch long grade 8 bolt, my truck is ford tough.

And be your own mechanic on this, not just following a trend....cause I know "E" is the default answer.

I forgot to mention option

F- Drown sorrows in a tall glass of favorite beverage..

But no choosing "F" as an option, only as an addition to a primary option

If the HPOP gear is on the outside of the block? and covered by the aluminum plate that goes to the bell housing, then how would it end up in the oil pan? at least thats my mentality right now, or is there a large enough oil port for it to fall into the oil pan?

and what is the default drink for "F"

That I'm not entirely sure about but you can get the lower pan off quicker than pulling trans. I'll do some digging.

Pulled oil pan it not on there, looked on top of secondary tray with a flash light, its not there either, but the engine bumps over just fine.
