By pin do you mean the fuel pump lifter?

If that's what fell in, if you heard it go splash into the oil, and then hit the bottom of the pan, you should be OK, it won't go anywhere.

Good luck, I had the same thing happen but I was able to get a pair of vice grips on the lifter and wiggle it back and forth out. If that wouldnt have happend I would have been in the same situation you are in.

It is pretty open to the oil pan from the cam. There is a "platform" or splash guard in the oil pan that it may have landed on. Here is a picture of the oil pan off of a SD, the OBS ones are slightly different but very close.
