Wow. Now I have to check our car. I think I remember putting that back on but who knows? Hopefully I didn't fuck that up.

It's for the mechanical clutch linkage. There's a cup on the other side that holds one side of the shaft to actuate the clutch in the early non-hydraulic clutch'd cars. You don't need it if you have a hydraulic clutch.

No, I don't think that is the part in the picture. My '73 had it and never had a mechanical clutch. My '69 has a mechanical clutch and the cup you refer to is a different looking part. I always thought this was just to strengthen the trans/engine block mount interface.

While part #17 is not listed on RealOEM I did find it on a BMW dealer site. They show it used for both manual and automatic transmission cars, which appears to rule out the mechanical clutch theory. I'll have to go look at my '69 in more detail...

So far, the '69, '71 and both '73's have had this piece installed. Will take a closer look at the Agave car end of this week. It is one of those parts you don't notice.

Here it is on MLytle's 73tii engine
