Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Any ideas of where this fell out of?

I removed my hogs head tonight for changing bands. When I initially lifted it up this piece fell out onto the floor. It fell out of the passenger side corner by the engine. It is about 3/4" in diameter and I cannot see an impression where this was located. Any ideas?

Looks like a wood spoke shim but may have just been installed under a bolt. The slot was cut so the bolt didn't have to be removed all the way.

if your engine is the Improved model, it could have been a spacer between the hogshead and the cylinder block.

A shim for the mag coil

Hogs head spacer shim, got to work on more 26/27's didn't even think of that. :-)

Ed is correct - it is a shim used between the trans. cover & block to align the 4th main (ball cap).

Yes, it is an improved model. I'll look tomorrow for the mark up at the block but I'm sure you guys are right. Now I have to see if I can tell if there was one on each bolt because I only found one. I hope the other (if it exists) didn't fall down into the front of the transmission. Thanks for the input.

Of course it did. :-)

If you don't find it right way, I'd suggest turning the flywheel around and checking all the magnets.

Whew! I lucked out, the other one was still stuck to the hogs head. Another crisis averted.

In my T ignorance, I thought that I could hold the reverse band ears together long enough to get the nut off and then grab the washer before the spring forced the ear of and the washer into the sump. Well, I'm sure that most of you know what happened. Again, I lucked out and found the washer after getting the hogs head off.
