Look at the valve spring on the right. The nut came off the rocker arm and fell into my engine. Lucky I was able to drop the oil pan, and there it was sitting at the bottom. The car had been at my parents house all winter, and this weekend two friends came to visit and drove it down for me. On friday they pulled into my garage, and the car was making an aweful top end noise.
Luckly everything's back together with no damage done. It sure did scare the hell out of me. I was furious because from the sound of the thing, it seemed like they money shifted the thing into the wrong gear, messing up the valvetrain.
Yes I want to see some pictures.Don't waste money on the SnapOn tool. Take a 10mm 3/8" deep socket and press it into a 5/8" wrench. All you need other than that is a long narrow flathead screwdriver. You can score all 3 of those for less than 10 bucks at Harbor Freight or somewhere like that. I've got one that I've used for almost 5 years now that works perfect. If you don't understand what I'm talking about doing, I'll take a pic of mine when I get to work tomorrow.
