cost about 2 bucks. It keeps the flywheel from rotating and throwing off the timing. Note it doesn't keep the flywheel in place just position.

I have been checking with my dealer regularly and they finally admitted to knowing about the service bulletin around the woodruff key. I am scheduled for the repair next week. I spoke to them a bit about it and they are not just going to glue it with loctite and retorque. They said that they will lap it to fit correctly. If anyone takes their's in for this I would push for the lapping and try elsewhere if your most convenient shop won't do it.
