I have that in my signature on skype at work. "If you don't have time to do it right, you must have time to do it again".

Some ppl have some of the most unusual stuff on theirs.

if you do not do it right you will most likely have what i call a grenade motor, it may run like heII but make a big bang most likely sooner than later...

Some refer to that as a "hillary" motor.

Have you tried fishing around in there with a small magnet yet? should be an area that can be reached that way, otherwise shoot some compressed air in and see what happens....what do you have to lose??

If you don't retrieve it, I bet the gears will chew it up if you run the motor - then a magnetic drain plug and the oil filter will catch the bits (if you're lucky)! One time I changed the oil on a Can Am for a guy and found a one inch long drywall/wood type screw stuck to the magnetic drain plug, and it still looked like new!

only way to truly clean it out is to split the case, if you do not want to do that then just hope you are a really lucky person because there is no way to clean the bottom end right without splitting the case. a magnet will do nothing with a bunch of aluminum from the piston in the lower end and compressed air will most likely just push it farther in the cases.
