Did you manage to locate it again? I remember us discussing this a while back, i always thought it was to keep the half shafts off the axle tube seal as they slid back in.Frank, neither did I until I heard this tinkling sound as the oil ring rolled down into my diff. In the end, I managed to get it back by making a sectional slide hammer which I fed up the axle and out through the hub. It's not listed anywhere as a part. It just keeps oil up against the seal when parked or over at an angle.
i lost mine years ago to a exploding cv joint..
