Question about 1983 Chevrolet Silverado
I had a bent push rod on intake valve (#7)and dropped the rod. took off the oil pan, but cant see the rod. Any idea what I can do? will it have dropped far, or can I use a magnet to retrieve through the head? Or can I take off the intake, and leave the head on. Feeling stupid over here.
Remove the intake most of the time it wont go past the galley but you cant ussally get it out through the small holes they come through
