    Broke a little piece in the head....

    Hi guys in the process of replacing the right valve coverand while taking off this little piece. It broke off and fell im the smale hole. I can feel it with my finger but it will not come off
    should I try with a little extension to break it up and leave it there?I think it falls in the valve spring area
    thanks for your help

    if you have a shop vacuum, push a 4" section of pool noodle in the end or sponge wrapped 1/2" or 1/4" hose in the end, and try to suck it out. if you can make it a bit smaller while you are using a vacuum, that helps too.

    should I worry if it stays there?

    I do not have carnal knowledge of the passage and where it travels. Someone will chime in soon, but I think it needs to come out.
