Hi All, Need Some Help Please

3 posts in this topic

Hi all, new kid here

Made a big mess up today and dropped a head dowel down an oil port in the block.

I'm hoping its gone to the sump and would this be death to the engine if left in?

It's gone down the port marked with the red line.

Thankjs for any help fella's!
