Took the timing cover off the 96 lt-1 to replace seals, when I pulled it off and knocked out the 3 front seals I found a circular spring fell out with the seals/gaskets its very tightly wound and thin making a complete circles about a 1 1/2" diameter maybe. at first I thought it was an o-ring. It's definitely a spring, very delicate.
Any idea what the HELL this thing is/goes to?
Will try for pics tomorrow if no one knows what Im talking about.
