I am trying to help a fellow boater who was working on his engine, taking an oil sample from his transmission. The sample pump slipped and the 12" plastic tube slid down into the transmission. He has been able to grab it a few times with a 4 finger grabber but now cannot find the tubing.
Any suggestions or tricks?
He cannot remove the oil drain plug (he needs a special short socket to fit).
The yanmar is a 3JH5 (54hp) I think.
