A routine plug and points change became a tad irritating today when #3 plug

After 15 minutes of unsuccesfully trying to retrieve it with fingers and
various implements - it suddenly disappeared without trace.
I took the LH carb off to get better access and used an extendable
inspection mirror to no avail.
The time this happened to me, the plug was positioned fore and aft in the space right between the 2 spark plug holes, just inside the tin. It would have been easy to find if I had just thought to feel there, but I actually never found it until I tore the engine down a few years later.
Apparently, it's a common problem. :)
