On nov/xx/97, after replacing reverser actuator on aircraft YYY I removed the lockout pin from the isolation valve to actuate reverser. I operations checked the reverser on #2 engine and found to operate normally. Upon completion I went to stow locking pin and stowed in wrong area -- locking out the reverser. Upon returning to work on nov/xz/97, was advised by air carrier that aircraft YYY flew from ZZZ to abc with the thrust reverser inoperative.
