it was in one of the original pins from that engine, not one of the new ones Rolling Eyes
so which ever dozzy jap put the engine together left it in there when he was building it
as for the pic
the one on the right has the nut as i found it i just put the other one there to compare

a bit to lucky me thinks, all it took was a light tap with a driver and mallet to get it out
iv had that engine goin to 8k a few times with grp a cam
the only thing is that there was nowhere for it to go once the piston was in the cyl if it came loose all it wouldve done is damage the honed surface, iv checked all 4 and theres no major score marks so i guess it just one of those things
