Did you happen to see strange lights in the sky prior to finding that?

Nope.

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

Well lookie there I will have to see if its possible thanks Jim.

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

Thanks for your input Cat, stick to your litter box issues.

Might it be the end of a twisted grounding strap? I know on some flat fender John Deere's, the twisted grounding straps were collared or crimped to an end piece like that. Is the hole size roughly 5/16" or 3/8"?

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!

 

Your chickens sound a lot like mine. I was using a sawzall to remove a section of wall that had rotted out in my barn and I was constantly picking up chickens and moving them out of the way. I would have thought the noise would scare them off, but they wanted to be where I was. There almost as bad as the dogs for "helping" me work.

 

Sorry Hank, I have no Idea what that is.

 

Jim
