    Guess it can't do much besides fall apart in there. I'm not tearing the engine apart for a moth. It was the size of a small bat though

    Moth's wing dust is really slick. That's my super-cheap oil additive speed secret...

    Only thing you might want to do out of respect is call your local lepidopterolgy Department

    take a 3/8" diameter clear hose and put it in the end of a shop vac hose, and put rags around it to create suction in just the little hose,
    poke it all around in the block/crankcase to see if you can some out,
    good luck,

    eh it's bolted back up. The oil and filter are brand new. I don't think it will do anything. Maybe it's soul will live on inside the engine, fighting carbon build up, detonation and ring deterioration.
