Hello everyone, i broke a rocker arm on cylinder #2 exhaust side. with that being said. both shims popped out. I found one. Non guided shim. Im having a difficult time finding the other one.
Any suggestions where i should look before i pull the oil pan?


Thanks

90% of the time they fall down into the oil pan. Just check and double check every nook and cranny inside the head again before you run it. The shims are good at hiding in there.

As far as being bent?
or how.

Also it sounds like im going to look a little harder and then drop the pan i guess

I've done multiple dual guide mods using my old bench grinder. The popular "dual guide mod" video I made years ago is on youtube and I still use that same grinder.

No luck in the oil pan:(
There was also no metal shaving in the filter or at the bottom of the pan. :/ im going to keep looking it was getting dark and maybe more sun might help
