Question Name this part??

Hi all:

I've got my Prowler stripped down for some bevel gear work and i've found a spring in the base....not sure where it came from or whether it even belongs to this machine. Although i can't imagine it fell in the engine when someone was checking the oil .

Does anyone know what this may belong to?

To small to be that I think I just changed the rotor and pads on the rear on mine, where exactly did you find that spring on the car?

Engine related spring or not?

Perhaps the question should have been.....did this spring come from somewhere inside the engine - if it came from elsewhere, that doesn't concern me. It really is a small spring and I can't imagine where it may have came from. The spring is just less than 1" from hook to hook and the spring section is 1/4" diameter. It was sitting in the base below the oil pump, but was completely free to move around the base. There is no obvious locations where it came from, but because I am not the original owner of this 2006 650, I have no idea what previous owners may have done with it.

As I said, the only explanation that I have is that it fell into the base when the dipstick was removed, by a previous owner, to check oil level

I just changed the frame out on a 08 650 and I can honestly say that I never came across a spring like that, that spring had to have come out of the motor.

A fellow doesn't generally need all the parts to make it run anyway

Probably right

haha....you're probably right scheftie....i'm just picturing getting this thing all back together, only to find that this little misplaced spring prevents the machine from going in forward

Hey sandcris....what is the windup spring? Are you just toying with me
