I got one of those giant iron-ore magnets we could use to try and pull the loose metal towards the oil drain hole, then try to reach it with a shop magnet. I'll bring it by tonight.

If you have a magnetic drain plug it will also pick up the small metal pieces.

Well C-Zulu and I made quick work of removing the fuel pump engine bracket to see if that would give us a better angle on the debris. It didn't.




Looking at the bolt though, the piece of metal missing is smaller than the width of a grain of rice, and it appears to have been torn off (hopefully into smaller pieces yet) so I don't think it's too bad of an issue. 500 mile oil change and hope for the best!

Once in my 950, started the engine and the clackity-clackity-clackity would not go away. Only above 5000rpms would sound like a normal engine.

Imediately thought that it hadn't any oil, cheked oil level, all ok, but simply it would not stop making that terrible noise.

Laid on left side and removed the oil filter screen cover. (didn't take a pic), but there was a spring hitting the oil screen.

Later found it was the oil pressure valve spring that had come off the housing, hence the low oil pressure and clacky distribution.

But now one question remained to be answered: If the spring was off, where was the washer and locking circlip that held it??????

spent several hours fishing the engine cases with a magnet without any luck... was already budgeting for a complete tear down, when suddenly:



Next to the hex bolt, there they were, washer and circlip! How they got there and remained there with the running engine is a complete mistery!

bottom line, look for that bit in the weirdest places of the sump.

Did that,plan on doing that again. My offending foreign debris isn't anything comparable in size to your find, which is good and bad I suppose..
