    Exclamation Dropped a razor in the square water pump hole(SOLVED)

    How screwed am I? I was scraping the old water pump gasket and now i'm stressing.

    Are there any moving parts in the coolant channels? I dont know what the coolant paths look like.




    SOLVED: Used a tiny strong chrome magnet and some steel wire wrapped around it to form a tight cage. Was able to pull the razor out luckily.

    Thank you
