looks to be plastic might be to keep the shaft for hitting the starter bolt.

Just thinking! (Which sometimes can be dangerous.)
Ron/IA I really like that!

I think it's part of that Sparky Start setup.The rig that kicks the starter over when you retard the spark all the way.It ties into the spark rod,and has a bellcrank that pivots onto that collar to push the rod down.It looks like the rest of the setup has been removed,and hopefully thrown away.

Y Blockhead. That part is part of the up start kit sold by the vendors. Look at Snyder's part # A11470-F.

Had one on my car for a while.

Dick - Looks like that is it.

At least I guessed it had something to do with starting. (Although, being on the starter rod, it wasn't much of a guess.)
