So today i was changing out my valve springs and had a long screw driver through the glow plug hole to make sure the piston was top dead center. I pulled the screw driver out after a while of cranking the motor over by hand and the tip was broke off. I dont know how this exactly happened or if the screw driver was broke before but i am 95% sure the screw driver was fine. Is there a way to see or does anyone make a magnet small enough to get through the gp hole? Any input would be great im in a real bind now. Thanks

Go to your local auto parts store or hardware store...there is a magnet that looks like a screwdriver..it has a very small end that you can extend out. Hope this helps.
