I think you nailed it!

The shims don't have to do any sealing.
Ah...yes, you are right...again! That o-ring is between the oil and those shims. Thanks!

Guess that is just my OCD...can't put it back together dirty!! :shock: :lol:

If a previous owner split the tractor after they had the shifter cover off the Zirk may have fallen out of the steering bearing that bolts into the steering support. I didn’t think it looked like it had threads so it could have been a pressed in zerk. Could have been a replacement bearing. I think the older tractors only had a oil hole that was countersunk. I have seen several of those zerks that were loose in the past. Just a possibility. I don’t suppose the little chunks could be pieces of a broken lock washer?

I was thinking a ball from a ball bearing or poppet ball. The black pieces are petrified rubber from a seal.
