Take a look...Tell me it aint so!
I have been working a few hours tonight, slowly putting my stuff back together and decided to go ahead and change the oil. The oil definitly has a strong fuel smell, the oil filter is soaked with the fuel smell, and when I removed the filter I just happed to look down and see this...
It looks like something has chewed up the bottom of the oil filter housing at the bottom, where the cover bolt attaches to. It even looks like a metal splinter between the middle section of the bottom and the side, like where metal used to be.
Am I out of service???

Did you find any metal in the filter? Can you pull the front oil pump cover and see whats in it? If you cant find any large amounts of metal fragments then I would run it and check the oil pressure. Kinda looks like shity casting or something. Kinda hard to tell from the pic. Definitely strange.

I wish I could just bolt my stuff on and keep clockin' along. This sucks.
If anyone is around their ski can you take a picture of the bottom of the oil filter housing, or forward me a picture if you know of one posted ont he forum.
