Took the oil pan off my 400 diesel today to put the new head gasket in. Found this in the pan. Any ideas what it is?

Jon, is it metal or seeds? If it's metal I'd look at the piston skirts and sleeve bottoms.

Jon,
I don't think you can grow corn in oil, and aparently the oil didn't get hot enough to pop it. LOL.

It's all that is left of a JD that got sucked in through the air cleaner. Actually, it does look like corn.

It's dog food. LOL. This tractor sat for about 5 years with the engine partially assembled. Wile it sat there some chipmunks filled the entire block and 1 head with a mixture of dog food and insulation. I spent 5 or 6 hours cleaning it out. I had to completely disassemble it again to clean it out. I thought I got it all out but I clearly missed some. It does stay crunchy in oil tho. LOL.

It looks to me like someone used RTV silicone on the oil pan gasket. It may be excess RTV that squeezed out of the joint when the pan was bolted on.

Wow, I guess that this is what happens when you wait 20+ minutes with a thread open before posting a response.
