sc failure, no oil sieve ??
I had an SC failure where the front blades broke off. After the sc failure I looked in the intake tube and saw the blades. I was literally 3 minutes from the dock so I rode at a little over idle. (I'm kicking myself for not pulling the intake tubes but I was a bit shaken). It sounded like rocks grumbling but it rode fine.
I've looked in the circle oil filter and found about 2 tiny pieces of metal.
My throttle body had a little gray dust. Most of the pieces looked to be in my intake tubing and in my IC.
I pulled my front oil assembly and it looks like I don't have an oil sieve ?!?
Is it possible it got slurped into the engine.
Is it possible to pop the top of the engine and look into the heads without pulling out the whole engne. My stomach is tight thinking about what might have happened to my engine and I'm hoping I don't have to check the other oil assembly in the magneto thingy. I was thinking I could just put in another oil sieve and change the oil, ride it real slow then change the oil agains but how in the world am I going to get the oil sieve pieces back.
What do I need to do ?

Have you ever taken this apart? Was this ski second hand?
The screen plays a big part in preventing major oil pump damage.
Check the oil pump internals and get back to us.

My front oil pump is a little different. After you drain the oil remove the entire front pump and inspect for damage. If there are particles in the oil filter, both pumps (Front & PTO) are probably damaged.
