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

Per this illustration...


even if it went in the hole it may not be in the cylinder yet. I'm not
sure that is a delorean specific diagram, but there is a valve between
the injector and the cylinder.  


You know how and where you dropped it, but in general its much more
likely to be in the valley of death or elsewhere - good luck finding it.
Worst case you can get some 3/8" tubing and adapt it to the end of your
shop vac hose.  Make sure it easily picks up other copper washers and
then go fishing...

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


While taking out my injectors to send out for cleaning, I accidentally 
dropped one of the small copper washers. I will be looking for it 
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.
