i believe they put those in up until the last 90's early 2000's a plug at the transmission/dipstick tube to keep debris out till it was assembled and then it would just get pushed into the pan and would stay there harmlessly until the first pan drop/filter change.


it was a way to tell on a vehicle that you have if the filter had ever been changed before or not if it was still laying in there

My 2002 windstar had one. They were installed to keep stuff out until the dipstick tube was put in. Was a good idea i think

I don't have pictures but I've found valve body bolts in the pans before and chunks of planetary gears where they have chipped, O-rings and of course lots of clutch material.
These transmissions were still functioning fine.
