What did you drop in there? Did vehicle run till it locked up? Or did it just jam when cranking it to start it?

You can pull the heads, just dont damage the vehicles headgasket.

You have to take off the manifold inorder to get the heads off.

It could have just got stuck in the lower intake, I would check there first to avoid messing with the heads, also it has to come off anyways before the heads, soa good place to start.

If it aint there the heads will have to be pulled to get access to it in the combustion chamber.

At least you didnt drop somethign down in the engine. Thought you were sure of that so I wouldnt have even thought about hydrolock!

Glad you have it fixed.
