Lifter or cam follower popped out?

Rainbow Lifter or cam follower popped out?
Got a 95 USA LXJ? 5 speed 4wd 1.6 16v Kick that's been family owned and seldom driven since new. Has 77 thousand miles on the ODO if I remember correctly. Ive been going through the vehicle and am at the point of adjusting the valves.

I am adjusting them all to .008. Got to cylinder 3 intake the short cam follower right under the cam and when I went to tighten it it twisted out to under the cam and between the valve springs. Angry

I managed to get it out and put it back into place but the wire holding it to the rocker shaft is all bent up.

Does it just sit there between the cam and valve top? Does it need that piece of wire to hold it in place? Can I use some picture hanging or magnet wire to secure it?

RE: Lifter or cam follower popped out?
that is no wire at all its a spring,
called spring keepers and only suzuki made them and sells them.

IT SITs JUST LIKE THE OTHER 8 VALVES SPRING KEEPERS fit, all 8 on that side same.

the p/n is easy , posted here many times.
ill get that again.

its not optional at all, sorry NOT./
the problem is 2 fold.
SUzuki huge delays digging them up from deep warehousing
and long ship times. some times ship 2 places to get to you.
kinda why they went Chapter 11 , IMO.
fits g16, swifts,esteems and sidekicks ,vitara
revised to
1284971C03 (version 3 yah)

west coast? $4.67 each.
