Thanks for the replied, I left this for sometime and tried lots of way to fish this out without any luck.
I do think the engine has had it anyway, so I'm not overly concerned tbh, although saying this after everything was put back together there was a loud concerning knocking noise, it doesn't matter as this didn't fix the underlying issue of oil control rings.
But for everyone here is a nice video of I think the bottom end getting chewed up, correct me if I'm wrong. This is after having the cams out and replacing the valve stem seals - it could well be something else, maybe timing is not correctly set or where the car hasn't been turned on in 3 months oil starvation, who knows.
Sure it's not just the lifters?
Can be all out of oil if you've removed them.
