When I was removing my head yesterday one of the washers from the head bolt fell down where the timing chain comes up. What do I do?

Get a magnet on a long flexible stick. You can usually find them at any of the Parts-R-Us kind of places. I know Snap-On and Mac tool dealers carry them. It's either that or pull the timing cover(and/or oil pan).
Good Luck,
Randy D.

You could remove the pan and look for it or you can be sure it didn't hang in the chain mechanism and forget it. If it makes it to the pan it won't hurt anything. It can not get sucked into the oil system as there is a screen on the oil pump pickup.

With the head off, you should be able to see enough of the gears to verify that the washer isn't there. Pull the cahin up and hold it while hand cranking the motor over. Hand crank it again after the head and chain are back together.
