What is this part's function?
See attached diagram. Bottom end of a 720 Engine. It goes under the brass rotary gear. Is is just to keep spacing between the two bearings on either side of the rotary gear? Just wondering why its even there. Its not used in the 787 engine.
I just put a 720 engine back together and I think its rubbing slightly on the rotary shaft causing it not to turn freely. (At least when turning by hand.) Engine is still out on my work bench. Guess I'll be splitting the case again to make certain it is seated correctly.

It is there to keep the inner seals from blowing out in case of a backfire.
