2003 6.0L - Hpop resivoir ate a socket
Pulling the HPOP for replacement, 10MM deep socket stuck to the bolt just enough to fall off the ratchet, then tumble "behind" the pump and down where it get it's drive from the camshaft (?)
My question is - how impossible will this be to retrieve with the engine, transmission, and cab still firmly attatched to the truck?
I understand leaving it there is obviously not an option, I just want to know how much i am goign to hate life tryign to retrieve it.
I think the socket is a ferrous metal, so i should be able to get it out with a magnet if that area isn't TOO deep...
wonder what will go wrong with this thing next...
