    I'm so glad he's with us. Only he can keep this board from falling into deep dark hole and handle any situation.

    We did so many stupid things but he's still here and is ready to support us regardless our stupidity. I can't believe such man exists.

    You need something that will allow you to try to feel for the rubber tip. Get a couple of Oxy/Acetylene welding rods from a welding supply house, hardware store, (some carry them) or go to a welding shop and tell them your tale of woe, they'll probably give you a couple.

    Gas weld rod, (not brazing or arc welding rod) is thin, somewhat flexible but rigid. You can bend it to any shape you want and use it as a probe to search and feel for the rubber piece. Once you feel it you can move it towards the drain hole where you can pull it out. Its thin so you'll be able to use it with a bore scope.

    I'm sure you've fingered it out but just ignore Tpehak.

    Lunatic,

    Sometimes it is OK to just lighten up and be a bit silly. Even Tnag has pulled in his horns somewhat and actually paid you a compliment. Somewhat sideways, but a step in the right direction.

    We will all get serious again tomorrow I am sure and as Cooter says --beers all around. Hop on a jet in August and go riding with us up to Crater Lake/Marion berry pie. You can use one of my bikes.

    All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, they say.

    Sorry everybody to flog this but I confess curiosity--did the guy ever get his piece of rubber out of the swingarm or not?

    Currently waiting for the camera to arrive from amazon. I cant see or feel anything inside the swing arm from the available view angles. Having a big head is adding a level of difficulty.

    That Amazon camera I gave you link for is awesome. I used it to inspect valves and pistons.
