Yanmar 2gm-15HP foreign object in oil pan

I changed the oil in my engine for the first time yesterday, and made a stupid mistake. The slender oil change tupe had a small rubber connector on the end of it, and I forgot to pull it off when inserting it down the dip stick hole...it fit fine. However, after I had finished, I found I could not pull the tube out......but eventually, out it came......without the little rubber connecting piece.
The rubber item is about two inches long, 1/4 inch diameter, and is now in my oil pan.
How serious is this? My marine mechanics said not to worry.....it will not get sucked into the engine, as there is a screen over the oil pump intake.....
Just wanting asssurance from someone......do not want to tackle removing the oil pan.
Comments ?????

Re: Yanmar 2gm-15HP foreign object in oil pan

As long as the screen over the pickup tube is indeed there, and the rubber part is of a size and shape that cannot block the screen, you're OK. If you don't have an oil pressure gauge, this is a good time to install one, so that you can reassure yourself that all is well. Auto parts store components will do the job.

Re: Yanmar 2gm-15HP foreign object in oil pan

Yes your mechanics are right there is a screen on the pickup tube on the 2QM15. Just make sure your oil pressure alarm is working & you will be fine.
I've seen worse things in sumps
How do you like you engine BTW?
I want one as I'm a bit underpowered with our YSM8 which is basically 1/2 of a 2QM15

You’ll be fine. If it floats the crank may chew it up into fine bits though, but I don’t think it will hurt anything.

You could try to get it out through the oil filler hole with a small wire probe twisted to shape from some tie wire.

I think your mechanic is probably right though.
