Drop the K frame and pull the sump off, or fish around with a magnet tool.

dropped a small nut down once, never did anything just stayed on the bottom of the sump, meh if you're worried then yeah get it out. yep drop the frame.. you'll see how the sump comes off when you get under there.

yer.. at first with the razor blade i wasnt too worried.. now the magnet is in there somewhere i dont knwo if its stuck on the crank or the bottom of the sump. gr. i might take the sump out and change the gasket coz its leaking anyway. just another job i didnt need! haha.. any words of advice on droping the k frame? ive never done it

yeah what im thinking is, i might just unbolt the engine mounts and lift the engine with an engine jack. it also describes this way in the manual, and i should get enough clearence wiht the head off and the pivot from the gearbox.. hopefully.
