HELLLPPPP!!! Dropped a nut into cylinder head!!!!

I was doing a valve adjustment and one of the nuts was not getting tight so i removed it and checked it out, it seemed fine but then when i was putting it on i dropped it into the cylinder head......I heard a couple dings like it hit a couple things and then silence so from this i assume it fell into the oil pan because the piston i was working on is at TDC so i wouldnt have heard it hit so many things. Any advice on what to do? Or has anyone had this happen to them?

If the piston was at tdc it couldn't possibly be in the oil pan...unless you have a massive hole in your piston in which case there's something else seriously wrong.

Get a small magnet and go around seeing if you can pull it up. Can't offer any other advice mate.

Not good, Don't see how it would get in the oil pan wherever the piston is. Like brash said get a magnet/claw pickup tool and hope you can fish it out. If you can het your hands on a nice borescope you can take a look inside the cylinder and see if you can find it.

Magnet is gunna be your best bet, and if that doesn't work be prepared to start taking stuff apart which I know u dnt wanna do but you gotta do what you gotta do. Good luck.

Ya at TDC the piston is all the way at the top. if u cant get it out with a magnetic stick then take the head off.

Re: HELLLPPPP!!! Dropped a nut into cylinder head!!!!

Wait... doing a valve adjustment... Did you remove the spark plugs for any reason? If not, its not possible for it to have worked its way into the combustion chamber.

Either way, find the nut before restarting it. It could easily be stuck in the rotating assembly or next to a valve spring. Both of those could spell catastrophic failure too. Most likely, its just sitting in a puddle of oil in the oil pan... Which still sucks because pulling the oil pan requires removing the exhaust header.

yea that is what i think happened cuz i was doing number 4 exhaust valves and the one to the left to be exact and i dropped it to the front of the valve spring toward the front of the motor and there is an oil port right there to the left of the left valve so that is where i think it fell down to the oil pan because when i stick the magnet stick down there it goes really far down then gets attracted to something which im guessing is the crank or something down there
