Looking for some 5.7 hemi engine builder expertise. I did an oil change yesterday on my wife's 2013 Charger rt. After I was finished, as I was pouring my used oil into my recycle jug I noticed 2 small balls on the bottom. They look like check balls that would be in a transmission valve body. Just smaller. They mic. at .124 thousands. Has anyone had something similar?? Also, I used that same drain pan for my motorcycle the night before. When I drained that oil before I used it, I didn't see any balls... Thanks..

Yeah. .124 thousands come out to about an 1/8th inch ball. I was thinking maybe from a component related to VVT.. Either the phaser of solenoids..?

I have never had the cam phaser apart, so I don't know if it has ball bearings. The lifters have needle bearings.
