Yippee! The journey is good and with the struggle, "let desire do the work". The longing and its conclusion pull us forward through the path of darkness, we only need to keep going. And then-- the rebirth!

Bravo! Brick wall overcome. Now button her down real nice, add some fluids and take her for a long satisfying drive. It is amazing what can be accomplished with patience and determination.

Let the celebrations begin!

Best of all, this thread did not just 'die' inconclusively.

Not quite yet; while it is an accomplishment to fish the screw out, he still has an engine that is not at TDC, the cams are not locked, the tensioner's are out, and the IMS flange cover is off. There is still a lot of tricky work yet to be done..........

Woo Hoo! Looks like you used several ideas from several sources to get it done congratulations! We all together are smarter than any one of us alone! Way to go! And next time someone drops a screw there, they have you and your tenacity to thank for the process to get it out!

I love your eloquent and insightful follow up to fishing out the screw.

When I was 19 I rebuilt a golf gti engine and transmission on my folks drive. Got it all bolted back in. I placed an m6 nut on the front strut top mount.

I knocked it off and you couldn't make it up.....but it fell straight....and I mean didn't touch the sides.....straight in the speedometer drive hole in the top of the trans!

I know your woes, although yours had costlier consequences

Well done

Many times I have got to a seeming impasse when working on my car, saying F this, I'll flatbed it to a shop! Then I calm down and give it another shot and finally: success! Congratulations on your tenacity! Success feels so good, doesn't it?
