Welcome back to the next episode of Lost Lock. Well, later the next day after buying a bunch of small magnets and getting advice on how to get them on a string and yada yada. Well, funny thing, getting the magnet into the area is close to impossible, so as the manual states, just leave it in the oil pan, so I resigned myself to that.
So I spent the day looking for a new set of locks, and the only place they exist in our rural area is an old machine shop. Which of course they knew exactly what I needed, and after some fumbling around in a drawer pulled two out.
So, there I go. I have a set, but before I start, maybe one more search.. And then it happened. One little click, and there it was, tucked in a nook and cranny of the block, it never had dropped into the oil pan, carb.
Woohoooo! So I did what any person would do when its 95 in the barn. I turned off the light, closed the door and am gonna wait for Jimmy!
So, there ya have it. This weekends project. The good news if I spend every weekend working on the engine, it will not break any more! HA.
