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

There are a number of variables, such as the size of the piece, its 
shape, the compression ratio of the cylinder, the number of valves,
the size of the valves, the shape of the cylinder, and what everything
is made of.  You are much better off removing anything that falls into 
the cylinder than risk expen$ive damage.
