Did you take the flywheel off? It looks like one of the rollers that go in the back of the flywheel. I found a picture on google and circled the part. There should be 3 of them.
I am changing the base gasket and this was in the pan under the motor. Where does it go?
Yes fly wheel was off. I will go look.
Thank you jb. That was it and it is back where it belongs.

If that isn't it, you can always hope B-dub will stop by. https://tw200forum.com/forum/technica...placement.html
jb882 nailed it. Since you have it back together I'm showing this photo for the others. This shows the starter clutch on the backside of the flywheel. Make sure it has the Compression Spring, Spring Cap, and the Dowel Pin (aka puck).
You may want ask the moderators to rename the title of this thread to something like: Starter Clutch Components - Mystery Part Discovered. That way folks searching for these components in the future could find it faster. Folks will not know what the "Mystery Part" is without opening the thread, which unless accidental is less likely in the future.
Thanks for all those that helped.
P.S. Because you were working on the base gasket, without you verifying you took the flywheel off, I thought it was possible the mystery part could have been the Hollow Dowel pins which help line up the cylinder and head. Like jb882, I was pretty sure this was a starter clutch dowel pin as it was solid, but unsure as normally a base gasket replacement wouldn't call for the flywheel be removed. Thanks for providing the picture and verifying it for us all.

I'm glad Admiral posted what he just did because i was about to do the same. I had mine apart back in March and replaced a missing puck, spring and dowel pin on mine. Without it, your starter clutch won't work and you'll be kickstart-only (if you have one).
