5mm Allen Wrench End Stuck in Glow Plug Hole
Okay, I switched-out my injectors today and was replacing the oil diverters using a 5 mm allen head on the end of a driver. Well you guessed it, the small allen head came out and went right down into the open glow plug hole. I tried fishing it out with a magnet, but the magnet is not strong enough -- it's probably lightly wedged in there.
So, should I hand crank the engine using a wrench, in hopes that the compression will blow it out? or do I need to remove the head -- ugh! Rather not do that.
