Can you identify this? It was in my sump.

This clip was found in my sump when I removed it the other day. I can't seem to see where it came from, and I can't find it in my rebuild books either.

I hope these photos work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mate that comes off the oil pump drive shaft near the top under the dissy stops it from falling out when you put the oil pump on the block

I'm with fat071 on the clip, and the thing on the right is a 5 cent coin LOL

Thanks everyone,

I thought it might be but my "tom monroe 'how to rebuild ford v8's'" mentioned the clip but didn't show it.

Am I right in thinking that if I don't remove my dissy then the shaft won't fall out? Or am I better off pulling my oil pump and pushing the clip back on?

And yes, it is a five cent piece!!!

Ok, Maybe I'd better put the clip back on just incase I need to pull the distributer some time.

The engine is only a temporary engine as I am on a limited budget to change a six to an eight. I would like to save for a rebuilt engine but for now this one will do.

the only thing is mine did have one on it but it wasnt tight enough, they need to be faily firm as the shaft sometimes binds to the distrib mine did anyway

You must remove your oilpump and shaft, then put the clip on the shaft. Then put it all back together. I once had a shaft pull out when i removed the dizzy. I left it in the sump and got another shaft to get by. All was good.
