Re: [DML] Possibly dropped copper washer from fuel line into engine cylinder

It will most likely completely destroy your engine if you operate it with a washer of any kind inside the cylinder.

 when I have some time, hoping it dropped down below somewhere in a 
 harmless location.  It wasn't on the floor when I looked.  Probably a 
 small chance, but what if the washer dropped into the open injector 
 opening into the cylinder?  I am hoping I don't have to disassemble 
 anything to look for it, and wondered if serious damage could occur if 
 a washer did fall into the opening into the engine cylinder.  Since it 
 is a relatively soft and small washer, I would hope it would just get 
 vaporized as the cylinder fired, or could it totally mess up the 
 engine.  Any advice is appeciated.
