Default Wtf is this piece?

We dropped the trans pan on a recently acquired van (99 E150) at work, and found this piece in the bottom of the pan. Our best guess is it was a plug for the dipstick tube hole prior to assembly and it got shoved into the pan with the installation of the dipstick tube rather than being pulled first. We're going with that theory unless informed otherwise.

Wtf is this?

Sounds like a good theory to me.

Thanks, I almost PMed you, but thought I'd give the general population a shot at it first.

Ah, makes sense, I haven't seen one that size in a while! Why would someone be smuggling it in a transmission pan though? Does the ATF soak in and keep it permanently lubed?

Just like the old days... And, it took several hours to go south, so that's not really quick compared to how it used to be.
