HELP Please

Let me start first with, I CAN NOT BELIEVE I DID THIS!!!!!!

While starting to put my truck back together after doing head gaskets and studs, I was updating the stc fitting in the high pressure oil pump. I was getting the 2 o-rings out. Got the small black one out but while getting the yellow bigger one out it flipped and went right down the back of the engine where the gear that the pump runs off of. I have tried to fish it out. Taken a shop vac and made a small hose to run down there, no luck.....

Please, could some one go a head and just rip my a$$ and beat me with a bat. Afterwords could you tell me what or how am I going to fix this grand f$&k up. Please I'm just sick over this. Help

Since it is a rubber o-ring the gears should chew it up with no harm. Since it is the bigger 0-ring I would recomend pulling the FICM fuse and bumping the motor over a few times to give it time to chew.

Odds are it dropped all the way to the pan but no guarrenty. If really worried pull the pan.

just be glad it wasn't a STC bolt.

I can't really think of anything an o-ring would do. Being it is large enough it will probably just settle in the bottom of the pan. As long as it doesnt get too ground up the pick up tube won't ever be able to pass it into the oiling system.

HELP Please

Dude!...that's totally BALLS!

Everyone should learn a valuable lesson from this (I know I am) and that's the importance of stuffing some tags into exposed opening to avoid things and debris from getting in there.

Wish you luck on getting out... I know I would keep trying because I wouldn't feel good about hoping its ok with leaving it in there
