ttyR2 Or...change the oil and see if it comes out the drain.

F550Terry If you go to get it out, I'd get a shop vac and reduce the large vacuum opening down to a 3/8 clear hose to fit into the fishing hole. If you can get you some pantyhose (no judging here ) put it the large vac hose like a screen to stop your O ring from going into vacuum trashland. The O ring may just stick to the 3/8 hose if you have a good vac.

I've had to fish the craziest crap out of the craziest places. I can thank my wife for the training.

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

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

h0trod grab your ugly stick and fish that badboy out.

NoRalPh 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
