Doing som pasture mowing a few days ago in some tall grasses when I found one of those recent stumps the hard way... Drove right up on it and mashed the pan. Got pretty noisy right away and I shut it down after hearing the reciprocating assembly complaining about the sudden lack of clearance. Son and I got it dragged off with the Duramax and towed up behind the barn. I ordered a new pan right away and went to change it today. Found another issue... Knocked the oil pump off it's mounting flange. I got lucky though, no other damage except where a counterweight was hitting the pump but no sign of rod or bolt damage.
