Had a boo boo
For some reason It was a silly mistake when building my engine I put the clutch push rod ball bearing in the shaft before the push rod, and after I put the push rod in sent it down the shaft then realised I put the ball bearing in the wrong order, now I turned the engine up side down on top of a polystyrene box to try and get them both out of the shaft the push rod came out and fell out into the box but haven't noticed the ball bearing.
is it possible either the ball bearing is jammed or its fell out the other side of the shaft into the gear box. which will mean I have to strip a fresh build nearly all the way down
any suggestions ?

@MH-Bikes-N-Bits Just run some compressed air down the clutch actuation arm. Cover the clutch side with a rag to catch the ball bearing. I would very much doubt that the ball bearing will get stuck.
It could get loose into the activator shaft and into the gearbox if you’re unlucky (looking at one of my old casings)...
I’d try a coat hanger magnetised with a big speaker to try and pull it out, or air like Calum said. Let us know how it turns out if possible please bud?...
@SpookDog I managed to get it out with a glow plug magnet luckily it was just in the shaft didn't have to split the case thank god
