Angry its the "OHH CRAP" statement

1997 ford f350 7.3. the problem is i was replacing the fuel supply pump and taking it out the plunger had fallen into the block. yes the plunger. its a valve like that rides on the camshaft. i pulled it out and it just fell into the engine. ive been trying to fish it out with magnets and the scope where you can look down in tight small spaces. drained the oil pan to see i could get a magnet in there or something but its not in the pan.

Anyone else had this problem? or any ideas would help alot.

thanks

Did it fall through past the cam? You could try rolling it over by hand and see if it is sitting on the crank or something and will fall into the oil pan. Is it small enough that you could get it out of the drain plug hole anyway? Man I hate to hear about stuff like this but you may end up having to pull the engine and pull the pan.

I know with my truck... if the plunger falls off... you have to jack up the engine... and drop the oil pan...Even If its in the oil pan... your not going to fish it out through the drain plug.. If not... looks like you'll be taking apart the top half of the motor..

i actually felt the magnet grab it today and when i pulled up it fell and could hear it make the ting ting noise. it was in the pan. we bumped the bottom of the pan and sure enough it was vibrating down there. i had bumped the pan yesterday and it wasnt make that noise. so its gonna live down there until someone has to pull the pan out. it shouldnt harm anything thing should it? i mean the pan is baffled and the pick up tube has a screen. there wouldnt be enough current to stir it up to the crank?

How far will the pan drop though? I mean...if the pan will lower a couple of inches...try to grab it again with the magnet...then just bolt the pan back up.

this may be a stretch but I think there is an adapter that bolts to the side of the pan where the dipstick tube goes in. the only problem is the adapter wont come out of the hole it has to be pushed in, but you may be able to take the nut off of it and push it in while hanging on to it with something then you may be able to fish out the rod with you magnet through that hole. if you drop the adapter in the pan your looking at pulling the pan off somehow any way it may be worth a try.

Same thing with a cummins.. you have to jack up the motor

If he can drop the pan down... just enough to stick a magnet in there it should work wouldnt it?:shrug:
