Where does this washer and gasket go?

Hi,
I'm rebuilding my first engine. Ford 460 in a 1993 F350.
I don't know where this gasket and washer go. The gray washer is metal and has a "cup" to it. I don't recall seeing them during disassembly.
The cork gasket seems to fit over the back of the crank where the fly wheel goes.
Thanks

It's part of a Fel-Pro engine kit. Looks like it has every gasket needed to assemble an engine. These 2 items were sealed in this kit.
Thanks

The gasket looks like a fuel sender gasket.

Good call. The number of holes would go along with that. Strange it would be part of a engine rebuild kit. I haven't looked at the sender, so I can't say for sure.
Thanks

Its a blinker fill gasket....Where you put your blinker and headlight fluid.....
No, just kidding...

It would appear to be what he said, send unit for fuel tank.
Diesel or gas engine....?

The blinker fluid tank does not have a cork gasket. I couldn't find the right gasket for it, appears there is a national shortage of unobtanium and this is what the gasket is made out of. I just ended up using "right stuff" on it.

What do you think the small, gray metal washer is for?

It's a gas, Ford 460.

(PS, that's funny, it was good for a laugh at 6:00 AM. Good way to start the day)

Thanks

The thing is I have never seen an engine gasket kit, a carb rebuild kit, or anything of the sort that didn't have a few odd seals or gaskets. These kits are made for a ton of motors, not just the exact one you have. So they will often have many, many components that don't go to your motor. That of course doesn't mean you ignore it and toss it in the trash but just to keep things in perspective.

Brian
