Do you mean the dust plate, if so. i would not suggest not replacing it.

Re: Help

the only thing about it that i know is that it got bent out of shape and the starter no longer lines up right, so it doesn't hit the flywheel right and just spins, and when my friend pulled the starter, wrenched on the piece of metal and put the starter back in, it would work for a little while, then start free spinning again

we got a number off of it though

yeah you deff. want to replace it, some people see it as just a dust pan(Shield), but if you remove it and dont replace it, that gap that it kept wont be there any more, and you will have some problems....

I would go to your local junkyard. They more than likely have one.
