This is somewhat embarrassing but I am hoping to prevent myself from having to open my transaxle again. I had a couple of leaky seals and a disintegrated gasket so I separated the halves and replaced all the seals and checked over the gears. Everything looked good I don't recall removing anything from inside the trans but I could have. After all was said and done and I buttoned everything up and I was cleaning I found this and now I am in a bit of a panic. Can anyone tell me what this is and where it goes. My assumption is it's the axle seal sleeve but I am not really sure. I looked over the manual from peerless and looked at the thread in the Tech section but couldn't place this part. TIA for any help you guys can provide.
