Customer Question

i was taking apart 3024c engine from cat 226b skidsteer. taking off front cover, fuel injection pump, took out cam shaft. during this peripheral vision saw something small fall on the floor. i never memorized which stage was coming off when this happened. but i just found the part. darned if i can find where it goes in any service manual picture. i can send picture if i had a text number or email address. it looks like a 3/8" circle with flat bearing surface on one side and recess on the other to accept some sort of rod. about 1/4" thick.

Sounds like it could be a valve cap, used to give a wear surface for the intake/exhuast valve. See if any of the other valves have it. You can add picture using the paperclip icon or tree icon above the typing box.
