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.
