so i went to adjust my valves today, and knowing that i needed to find tdc with that timing pin, i started to search around for it ansd then started to rain so when i was messing around i accidentally pulled the pin and then put it back in or so i thought, went for a 4 minute drive come back and park and there's oil everywhere...look up to where the pin is suppose to be and its not there!!! and im in college and i have to drive back home(250miles) next thursday, so i need to get a new timing pin or something, somebody direct me which way to go or does somebody have one lying around that they could send me or something...i wouldnt have thought that it would of been a cheap little plastic thing with a small o-ring that keeps all the oil in there..HELP!!!

I'm not a expert on 12valves,but what pin are you talking about?
You mean the one you turn the engine up against to index TDC?

If you only install a new plastic pin with the o-ring and no star washer is going to come out and leak again. Where in NY are you from? Maybe I can help you. I got the pin, o-ring and special star washer in stock. Oh, and if your pin housing broke, I got that too.
