Never sure whether to post these in the Tech or 308 board, so I shall try both Obviously I had a little mishap over Superbowl weekend. In trying to mark the timing marks on my flywheel in an attempt to chase down a running issue (http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=270801) my blind ass solicited the help from a neighbor to mark the marks. Well you already know the outcome at this point; but to make a long story short he dropped a 3" maglite into the bell housing :-( After several attempts of trying to fish it out and taking off the transfer case cover I am now looking for F-Chat help. The flashlight is all the way at the bottom of the bell housing. Sometimes you can see it through the hole at the bottom of the housing where the clutch lever resides. I have attempted to push it back up towards the top of the housing through that hole, but alas the hole is too small. I have also attempted to fish down some string in hopes to conjoin the string with the maglite in some fashion, but have not been able to get the string all the way down to the hole at the bottom of the housing. As I said I have also removed the transfer case cover in hopes that I would be able to gain access to the bell housing. No deal. I stopped there as it appears that I need a special tool to remover the gears of the transfer case. I have also tried turning things over by hand to see if it would bring the light back up towards the timing hole. No dice there either. Any other ideas anybody has out there? At this point am I resigned to the fact of having to remove the bell housing entirely and purchase the necessary socket to remove the transfer gears? I have not started the car since the mishap in fear of destroying the clutch and/or the flywheel. Again the Maglite is about 3" long and a .5" in diameter and made of aluminum. Would it be worth a shot to just the car and see if the that might bring the light back up towards the timing hole at the top of the bell housing, or is this akin to playing with a thermonuclear device? Any help would be appreciated.
