Exclamation 03 6.0, Dropped t-40 down oill drain!!!

I was replacing the #3 injector. The t-40 slipped out of the socket and went down the oil drain to the lower left of injector. Not visible and flex magnet didn't work. Did this fall all the way to the pan, or is this bad?

Yup this is bad, and no, it did not fall into the pan. Keep fishing with the magnet, you'll get it.

If you can't fish it out, you will need to pull the head. Hope you can fish better than me.

If you use a snake camera, you should be able to find it no problem

I'm hoping tomarrow that a mobile mechanic can come out and scope, explore and find and maybe remove...


Think positive.
