Does anyone recognize this part?

Hello everyone. I pulled my 1970 Chevelle SS LS5 out the other day and this part was sitting underneath the engine area. I’ve looked everywhere but can’t figure out where it came from. Can anyone help me out please? Thank you in advance.

Re: Does anyone recognize this part?

hard to get a sense of size.
was it dirty?
could have rolled under there after it fell off something else?

That's the button to my wife's coat. How did that get in there?

Re: Does anyone recognize this part?

Without something else in the scene to provide a perspective on size, I'm gonna' guess that it is the inspection port cover at the front of the transmission for the flex plate assembly / flywheel.

Looks small, like a quarter to me. And the "splines" are keyed at the bottom like a steering wheel shaft would be, right?

To me it looks like the retaining cap that goes on the stud of the lower seat where the seat back metal arm goes over. It could be off of something you have in the garage that may have a wheel on it.

Thanks for all of the replies so far guys. So it does have some grease on it, I should have mentioned that in the original post. It couldn’t have come of anything else in the garage, I have OCD tendencies and know where it’s and it’s all organized with a spot, so this is from the car. I’m not at home to take a picture until later, but it’s size is slightly larger than a quarter.

It looks like a cap for the drive shaft yoke. There is one set of teeth doubled up at the bottom of the picture. Is it flat or domed? What's the diameter of the plug?

Re: Does anyone recognize this part?

It's either a headlight fluid cap or muffler bearing synchronizer, they look a lot alike. Check fitment and you'll figure out which one it is.

I can't believe some of the genius car guys on this site haven't gotten it before me, I'm guessing everybody is busy replacing the winter air in their tires or greasing the canoodler sprockets and topping off the shock absorber damping fluid.

I bet your wife is playing a trick on you knowing you have OCD. Did you piss her off lately. Does she have a smirk on her face every time you say I can't figure out where this came from.

Itís the grease retainer for the muffler bearing. If you have dual exhaust there should be another one
