What is this part



I was removing my starter to install a fumoto valve for draining my block and this part fell down. Does anyone know what it is? Does it go on the starter somehow. I cannot figure out where it goes.

Thanks Randy

If that is small enough and that is a early 04 that could also be the spacer for a turbo bolt.

The only problem with all of our suggestions [includeing mine] they should be shiny.
Closer inspection it looks more like a black fiber or plastic. Stabalizer bushing maybe?

A size reference would have helped, a quarter or bottle cap something.

That is true. Wonder how long that had been rattleing around before it fell off.

If it large and plasric it maybe a solenoid cover for the starter, they did have some in the aftermarket.
Beyond that I got nothing.

The part is metal. Large enough to go around your pinkie finger but will not fit around any other finger. 3/4 of an inch long. The heads were off this truck in the past for arp studs if that helps. I'm just hoping it fell down from earlier work and does not go to the starter.
