Im helping a buddy do oil cooler and hpop with hpop off he dropped a 5/16 socket into the motor. We have looked and tried a magnet with no success on seeing this thing. If you guys have any suggestion it would be great. At a stand still. thanks

There's a good possibility that it just dropped into the oil pan. If you can't find it with a bore scope pulling a pan isn't to bad of a job just to check. Just an idea.
