Oil change - Simple right?

But Nooooo!

I discovered that the oil screen had fallen off and was lying in the bottom of the sump. Fishing isn't my favorite sport, but I eventually managed to hook and reel it in.

Has this happened to anyone else? Or is it again my unique disturbance of the Murphy Field (the field of bad luck that pervades all space and all time)?

If it CAN fall off/ It will. Yes, I think Murphy covered that.

I've never seen my older one come off...

So how do we make the older style sump screen "stay on" the bolt/plug?

The newer style bolt/plug is like a cap, and the sump screen sits way inside and is a separate piece.
