After popping of the flywheel of my K91, I found this lying on the floor, after a thorough inspection of the parts list and finding no match I'm left with '' WHATZAT IMG_1808.JPG ''

Almost looks like a ground lug wire connection.
Over all length and thickness?

I would say wire with slip on end goes on to this, hooked on with a screw. If Briggs, the upper screw on  the points covers sometimes had these on bigger engines for mag ground shut-off.

Looks like one of those keepers that hold the end of a recoil start spring in place. Whatever it's for, the person who lost it probably looked for it for hours. I blamed a chicken for eating a needle roller bearing for a T92 transmission. There's supposed to be 13 and I only had 12. One of my chickens was hanging out by the parts when I had them laid out and I said, "crap, she ate one!" I was gonna follow her around to get it back, but I said the heck with it. I found the thirteenth bearing on the work bench two days later, HA!

I like your answer, it makes sense but I have yet to find the spot.

I will investigate that plausible possibility ( NOT THE CHICKEN PART THOUGH )

I've seen a part like that before but I'm not sure what engine it was on. It was a keeper for holding the flywheel key inplace or the flywheel nut. Good Luck, Rick

Did you ever sneeze during this work? If so, consult a physician.

Boyscout, the Briggs 23D has a keeper for the flywheel similar to that thing, but it has two holes in it.

Was thinking wire lug that's missing the locking collar. Had a couple old garden tractors here that had battery terminals like that. There brass or copper with a locking collar that you slide the wire in and tighten down with a screw or small bolt.
