Noisy after changing glow plug

The tip broke off one of the glow plugs. So now there is
a piece of metal bouncing around inside a cylinder. It's louder
than a lifter but not quite as noisy as a rod. I would appreciate any help.

You get to pull the head off. I hope it hasn't screwed anything up.

Pull the spark plug out, disconnect the distributor and crank it with the starter. Should pop right out....

I agree with all the above, pull the head, castrated, and
hahahaha! Now, how about pulling the injector and spinning
the motor? What are the chances of the piece coming out
the injector hole?

I think they were saying to pull the injector and fish around in there with something to pull it out. I would say you would have better luck on the lotto than getting it to pop out on it's own. Lets hope it doesn't get stuck in the valve trying to excape and the piston hits the valve.
