Melling std volumn...I was a tad bit surprised when I saw the parts on the pick up, truck had good oil pressure, but I pulled the pump apart...Had a few marks so I tossed it.

Some of the the intake valve guides were broken off too...

I'd be afraid the melted plastic would cause some damage? I wouldn't use glue. It might get in the cylinder. It's a tough one but maybe you could use a coat hanger and attach some duct tape to it with a sticky side out and fish the straw out? One layer sticky side down and overlap it with the layer sticky side out and roll it under at the end. I think it would not be too thick to fit thru the plug hole and should be safe enough it won't fall off? Can you see the straw with a flash light?

I've had this happen a few times, I take a air hose and blow it in the hole and the tube flys out.

Not feeling too lucky plus ticked off at myself for letting this happen, so I was determined to get it out...

I had to remove this little wooden partition in the bilge, then doing a headstand, I could see the spark plug hole... (Thru the hole is the little fiberoptic light thingy.)

This was encouraging but the rest wasn't all that easy. I brought piston up to make it easier to reach. And straw got binded up in there. (?at piston top or in a closing valve?) So just for more drama it came out in two pieces.

Mission accomplished.

Is oiling each cylinder even helpful after a thorough fogging thru carb?

Thanks to all posters.

Nope, serious.

For years, I've just run the motors while I spray fogger into the carb until they choke out. Never pulled the plugs to fog the cylinders seperately. I've never had an issue.

Good to see you got it figured out.

It could have been the "straw that broke the camels..."
