Alright so I dropped a socket in the oil pan so I had to drop the pan, woke up this morning and decided to clean the inside of the pan out with some paper towels and then I found an aluminum (I'm assuming since the magnet won't pick it up) piece in there. I was wondering if anybody knows what this piece could be. it has a lip on the outer edge and some rigid lines on the outside of it from what I can tell... I haven't messed with any of the internal parts of the engine but have put new heads on and cams and all and didn't see any damage from the top of the pistons

Well, could it be a piece of a connecting rod? or the bottom piece of the piston? D==Ɵ

that almost looks like a piece of one of the tensioner guides but it could be anything. if someone installed your cams maybe they just accidentally dropped something in there.

did you replace your timing components when you did your cams and heads? If you used your old ones did you check the guide rails, chains, etc?

it looks to me like it a piece from one of the timing chain guides where the bolt passes through it i bet it is that take off your TC cover and then verify it
