Help. Where Does This Go?

I just replaced the shaft seat for the ignition sensor in the timing chain cover. I went as far as pulling off the sting-ray and gas tank and radiators. After installing the gas tank I found this laying directly under the engine. It's a ridgid foam gromet shapped like a top-hat. It's about 1" high and 1.5" across the bottom. I meat to take a picture but this drawing should suffice. The tupperware is still off but would like to put back on today.
Thanks,
Doug

Re: Help. Where Does This Go?

My best guess would be it would go into either side of the gas tank mounting points. It may slip inside of a metal washer. It has been a while since I had a LT and had the tank removed.

Looks like one of the 2 grommets that are located on the inside of the tank rear mounts. They fall out easily when reinstalling the gas tank. Look at both rear mounting bolt holes and you'll probably find the other one in place. Insert the grommet on the inside of the tank with the top of the 'top hat' in the hole.

I believe you are correct. After viewing some microfiche I see it's most likely the gas tank sude mount. Thank you.
