Guy on another forum has found this in the sump. I never have had the bottom end apart on a Leyland engine but is it a bearing cage?
Thanks

I am certainly no expert on Leyland engines, they were generally pretty solid, in fact that was the best and worst part of those tractors, it would never die and you were desperate it would 😂
However back to the post , i remember there was an issue some had with the harmonic balancer could this be it. I have never seen one apart

Don't think it's a Powertrain Pete or at least didn't see it mentioned as being one. As far as I can see,there are only bushes in the balancer gears too. It's a mystery....
