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

Well lookie there I will have to see if its possible thanks Jim.
Boyscout, the Briggs 23D has a keeper for the flywheel similar to that thing, but it has two holes in it.

Thanks for your input Cat, stick to your litter box issues.
Did you ever sneeze during this work? If so, consult a physician.

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.
