man, your going to have to fish that bad boy out of there somehow or
another !

I donno....

I'm going to assume that the larger hole is the Return (drain back into sump). So, what's going to happen to that sm O-ring? Where's it going to end-up that's harmful?

Interesting problem, retrieving would be best of course but I'm not sure I'd panic if you couldn't ;)

grab your ugly stick and fish that badboy out.

Doesn't that large hole return to the pan? That o-ring will just float around in the crankcase doing no harm.

get something to fish it out or take the pedestal completely off turn it over n shake it out, ya definitely don't want it going into your pan because after awhile it will break down and could possibly start clogging your pick up tube.

I gotta tell ya,,,,, I can't make sense of that...

#1 O-rings tolerate oil & heat really well. I don't see there being any "break down" of the material (it's not like there's any pressure involved like the ones he's replacing)

#2 It's far too big to get past the pick-up screen and its profile is pretty small even if it got sucked onto that screen (not going to have any effect on flow).

I sill say, don't see any consequence of a small O-ring remaining in the pan ;)

I agree with him^^^^^ leave it.

It 100% will swell up and break down, it takes time don't get me wrong but I literally just did and oil pan the other day that we found the old dipstick adapter oring inside swollen and broken down

Pull the pedestal off and see if you can get it
