...the small picture under your signature...?
To me it might look like a hydraulic tappet from a shovelhead engine..
But the picture is small.
If it look like a pushrod may fit on the right (top) side, it is a hydraulic lifter. If so, dont use it on your flathead :?

You have the upper portion of a hydraulic tappet, 53 and later pan, and shovel.
