Pulled timing chain cover and found about eight teeth missing from lower timing chain sprocket. Drained crank case and only found 2. Could the other six have gone into the oil filter? 1996 sportsman 500

No - they are laying in the bottom of the sump probably trapped by the oil pump pick up screen

Thanks Latebird. I'll have to look at my diagram. Will they stay there? I thought there was a screen on the pump. But wasnt sure.
