neway to my question


ive removerd everything and got the cover off only thing is i dropped the small lower guide into the sump and cant get it out. ive read a few post from where ppl have left them in to me this is a bad idea but i really cant be f**k pulling the motor to get it out.

so my question is will it cause a prob if i left it in ?

sorry motor is a el hybrid 6 fitted into a eb

in short, if you cant lower the k-frame/sump enough to dig it out then its not the end of the world. I have that same guide floating around, and a couple lifters and motor is still chugging along !!

just make sure you replace that bottom guide cause i left mine and then the left side snapped at the tensioner soon after....

Dont worry about it. Mine has 2 lower timing chain guides, 1 for the timing chain and the other hmm in the sump!! its plastic so wont hurt anything and as siad too big to be sucked up.
