    Anyone know what this broken piece is or goes?

    So I took a towel to sop up the water that always puddles under the engine and lucky me I found a washer I dropped a while ago that got pinched between the water box and hull. But I also found this:




    As you can see by its size (placed it in the "O" in the floor mat to scale its size) and shape it looks like the head or tail of a rivet. Does this look familiar to anyone? It was under the engine rolling loose in the deepest part of the hull so who knows where it came from except from inside the ski.

    The tail end of a rivet stem possibly from the rivets holding the breather tube flange/adaptor under the glove box.

    Cheers

    I'll check out the glove box...where ever it's from I'm sure it doesn't hold the engine together.

    Its possible it came off the side fairings/body panels.They are pop riveted in by 6 rivets a piece....It wouldnt be from the glove box,the glove box isnt riveted in nor is anything around the glove box riveted
    except for the body panels..If you found it under the engine it could have came from anywhere....

    Good point snowman...I know what you're talking about. I think I'm more curious than concerned.
