    BIG problem

    Alright so my dad and i just got done putting everything back together after having pulled the transmission to replace the rear main seal. we decided it would be a good idea to bleed the clutch as well since mine was sticking. While we were doing so my dad dropped the bleeder screw into the bellhousing!!!!! please tell me we dont have to completely undo everything we just did in order to get that bleeder bolt back out. is there another way? we tryed sticking a magnet through the hole were the starter is but we just couldnt drag it back up. does anybody have any ideas other than pulling the tranny back out? PLEASE HELP!!!

    Try a strong pen magnet(like a snap on). It might work, maybe. Or try fishing it with a magnet. Get a magnet and attach it to a string. . . . . . Maybe.

    ahhh!!!! get a high powered magnet and put it to the bottom of the bell housing and try to walk it up to the starter hole. it would neet to be a strong magnet and since the bell housing is aluminum it will move easy

    damn, i think the magnet on a string might just work, i tryed the the magnet pen thing, we kept getting it attched(i think) but then it wouldnt pull back up with out falling out

    speaker magnet would probably work, or an angled welding magnet

    If she works good, can I borrow her?

    Purely in the interest of research mind you
