Yes,I believe it is made out of nylon or some form of plastic,Its shaped like a ball,About a inch and a quarter in diameter, cut in half with about a 1/2 in. hole in it.The shaft that goes from the frame to your trans selector fits in it and it acts as a brng and is free to move with the eng & trans.If you lost yours,should be an easy find in any scrap yard....good luck
