ok *** is the L shaped bit i found under my bash plate?

i decdided to clean my bike a little bit (no it's true)

behind one of the bash plates i found this bit.

when the bike blew it's head gasket i actually stopped riding it because it started making a hollow noise as if the header pipe had fallen off -

appears that it was this which is just above the header pipe and appears to be in a hole which is straight thru to the exhaust port.

I can only guess that the block got hot (due to blown head gasket) and it then fell out?

hopefully it will just push back in to place?

it's in the manwell afterall - not under the cylinder head section or the exhaust section but tucked in with the carby - it is where the "Air Induction System" would go - obviously something not on the ADR delivered models.

now how to make sure it doesn't fall out again? (loctite and snot)
