it would be nice to be able to get the trash out of the crank case when you check or change the oil...Get a large frig magnet and put on the bottom of the pan, it'll trap metal particles there.
Thanks!Here is one with "Universal design measures in at M18 x 2.5"

what we are trying to do is capture the trash out of the suspension in the oil during the engine run.Was out in the barn today and remembered I had telescopic magnet tools. Wondering about putting a strong magnet on the oil pan near the fill port to capture and collect any metal. When changing oil, remove magnet, then insert one of these in the fill port to remove any particles. Given the limited availability of oil drain or dipstick magnets being creative might be the way to go. Link attached for typical ones.
Personally, have been using and repairing small engines for over 50 years and never felt the need for trapping metal particles. I am, however, rabid about changing and using good oil.
