I just got my top manifold taken off but, of course, I ran into a slight issue. I dropped a small 12mm socket in the back of the engine. If you look at the picture, it fell right by the Oil Supply Line Bracket Bolt. I tried finding the socket for a good hour but just cant seem to find where it went. Is it okay if I just left it there? It fell quite a distance down from hearing the socket drop like Plinko from the Price is Right.
I dropped a #10 socket down by my front turbo. I couldn't see where it went but had a magnet and poked down where I thought it went. I didn't get my #10 back but I got a 9/16 socket that someone else had lost. I also lost a #10 deepwell by the back turbo. Couldn't find it either. I just pulled the motor for a rebuild after spinning a bearing and got both of them back.
I cant just not find things like this, lol. I would take the whole thing apart just to find it if it were mine lol. Lucky for me its never came to that. Usually I only have to get extremely pissed before I manage to take a break and come back and finally get it somehow.
