Default Can you ID this mystery part on my Y-BlocK?

All,
On my 55 F-100 project https://www.fordbarn.com/forum/showthread.php?t=273280

I have spotted an unidentified bracket with a nylon roller on a post. It is attached at the left rear, see photos, marked with a red arrow. This motor is a 292 transplant mated to a T98 4-speed. Based solely on the oil pan and dip stick (photos) it seems it came from a non-truck.
The block casting is. EDB 6015E above the oil filter
The head casting is ECG-T

Can anyone tell me what this nylon roller part is? Is has no function on my truck.
Allen

Looks like its for a clutch Zbar or crosshaft mount for a standard shift.

Now that I know what to look to for I do find that sort of thing on the web. I think I'll just remove it and set it aside.

Thank You

Yes, the engine / oil pan came from a 'full sized' car. (photo 1)
Trucks and '55/'57 Birds use a rear sump oil pan. (photo 2) with the dipstick located on the side of the block, not in front. (photo 3 & 4)

Assuming the truck has clutch linkage, but it's set up differently?

Correct, the truck has an original clutch linkage for the F-100 with the 4-speed T98 transmission. A lever on the brake/clutch pedal support rod actuates the clutch from the rear. Perhaps there is more room underneath the cab in trucks vs sedans. The z-bar is not used.

I noticed you have a car engine oil-pan on it. aren't you scared that when you hit a bump in the road, that the front straight axle won't pop up and crush the bottom of that oil-pan? There is a reason why they made a different oil-pan for the trucks.

Here is an image of an F100 clutch. The clutch pedal arm rotates that U-shaped shaft to pull on the lever attached to the clutch throwout bearing.

Quite a few trucks have this "feature". None, that I am aware of, have experienced catastrophic oil-pan contact. Most annoying is that the oil drain is right above the axle.
