Hey everyone new guy here. Well I was scraping off the old vacuum pump gasket from the engine block (with a loose razor blade not a tool made for scraping ?) and OOPS! It slipped into the cracks past the cam and into the engine compartment that holds the vacuum pump cam timing spindle. I can't get it out. I can't even see it.Tried magnets. Tried scraping it out. No luck. Any ideas? At this point I'm wondering if I should just risk it and put the freshly cleaned and rebuilt vacuum pump back on and see if it works with a razor blade in its guts.

I guess I can always part it out :(

It may shave a bit of time off your 0-60 :biggrin:

Seriously though, it's either a complete stripdown or just risk it. Razor blade edges are treated to be really hard so I'm not sure what would happen if it comes into contact with moving parts??

You don't state in your profile which model you have or your location!

Yeah that sucks. Honestly, I would just take it to those oil change places and have them mount the car on their 'bay' as they call it and then the guy who checks the bottom of the car, can help you out with something.
