When removing the primary cover it's very common for that washer to cling to the cover and then fall off into the bottom off the cover or onto the floor and get lost. It happens a lot.

Could that be possible? It's a brass or bronze color.

This happens often also with the special thrust washer on the shifter shaft. It is difficult to find a correct replacement. I have notes on it somewhere. I'll look them up if anyone should request.
