If it were mine I'd pull the engine and inspect it. But I'm anal about these things, I don't like known, potential failures gnawing on the back of my mind.

Maybe it's OK, maybe it isn't, I just don't like finding out it isn't with a big bang, a cloud of parts, steam, coolant, and oil.

If socan we pull pan and take cap off and look at it and if its fine put it back on and retorque it. Or is that a major NO NO. The motors three years old and seems still strong with great oil psi till this lil misshap. Thanks John
I'd be more worried about a crack in the piston than I would about the rod bearing.
