What is this??

Found this in the oil pan of a Ď52 CJ3A L134 engine while cleaning it today. Donít want to put the pan back on until I can id it.
Any ideas?
Looks like there may have been a lip on one end of the oblong hole.

One of my jeeps has a baffle on the dipstick...I'm looking for a picture....

Check the dipstick and see if the tab is still there....about 1/3 of the way down from the cap...

You da man 1955CJ5. I was thinking it looked familiar but I didnít have a clue where it came from. I donít think it is on my dipstick, Iíll braze it back on tomorrow.
Thanks again!

Glad to help!

I think I posted this some time ago and very few had ever seen one...

Maybe they shoulda looked in the oil pan:)

The 3a's is missing, but it has a tag on the dipstick..that is the CJ-5 dipstick in the picture....

Kind of hard to understand why Willys thought that was a necessary part for the dipstick.

Maybe it keeps the dipstick off the crankshaft throws.

The oil filler tube is part of the PCV system. It regulates air flow.

Already have the baffle brazed back on. With it off it would have been a good time to make a pattern for other folks. I will get a measurement and post it.
