I was working on my 2008 rxt 255 and as I was taking off the tops valve the thrust washer fell down into the pto housing. I was just wondering if anyone new a quicker way of getting it out then Having to take the pto housing off.
my friend had some one do that to him and didn't know until to late had to replace oil pumps both and lots of other internal damage.
you need to get it out ASAP you could take off the top cover to give you a little more view and access maybe a magnet and string or stick.
At worst you will need to either pull the motor or pump to give access to the pto housing you will have to split to get it out
PS WHAT A **** DESIGN BRP who thought of that design must have been pissed WTF
