Please help. What is this thing?

I had disassembled my 351W motor, and now I'm putting it all back together. I just don't know what this washer-like part is and what it does. Please give the name and the purpose. Much appreciated. This part went on the crankshaft nose.

I'm not seeing how it does that. Does the disk curvature gather leaking oil? Is it the front cover gasket that prevent oil leaks?

Oil Deflector Ring

Hey Bud, Slip it on the crank, pushed against the crank sprocket,cup facing out. Install timing cover, install harmonic balancer, when the balancer bolt is tightened up, the balancer holds it in place against the sprocket. It's purpose is to deflect the deludge of slinging oil away from the timing cover seal to keep the seal from leaking. Without it the seal will leak. That's about the best I can explain it. If you already put it together without the deflector, take it back apart, get new gaskets and put it back together. You can carefully straighten that bend out with some pliers. I forgot to put one back in a long time ago, found it in the bottom of the part washer along with a 3/8 bolt. I pulled it apart put the deflector in(I do believe I bent it too,trying to pry it off,it was stuck on from Quaker State sludge) never did figure out where the 3/8 bolt went.LOL olnolan
