Re: big probiblem with mechanical pump

did you hear a splash when it fell? if so it may have fell right down to the oil pan.

Re: big probiblem with mechanical pump

More then likely its in the pan... If so, I would not worry about it too much. Not going to get it out of there without pulling the pan, and so long as it fell in the sump its not going to do any harm...

Re: big probiblem with mechanical pump

Best thing to do is just plug that hole with a freeze plug. This thread shows how that's done. Electric Fuel Conversion pics - Powerstroke Nation
