when putting the valve covers on, one of the was sitting against the hole exterior instead of going in the srcew hole, without knowing this, i screwed away the side of the hole exterior, shaving little bit of metal strings off. when i did realize this after taking the cover back off, i cleaned all the little peices, there wasnt much, i was still afraid of the potential damage it would do to my engine. i realized after i put the cover back on that maybe i should have sanded it down or something? is it possible that the oil flow can possibly "peel" more metal off from that areal as the surface was still a bit un even??
Im doing the water pump today, i just realized the neutral switch wire is not behind the heat sheild, i forgot to put it back before putting the timing belts on. is this a big deal? can i just route it on an alternate path?
