my friend has a 67 mustang that we've been working on dropping a rebuilt 289 in. everything's almost done, except we ran into a 'minor' problem tonight ... while connecting the throttle linkage, a spring came off and went down the hole where the distributor goes and made it all the way into the oil pan where we'd just put 5 quarts of oil in. we tried to see if it was lodged with mechanical fingers, but then we knocked the shaft out of place and into the pan as well. now we're trying to figure out the best way to get that shaft back in. any suggestions?
