    Distributor gear, or something that would be set up as such. Brass or steel, they're made of both. Nonetheless, somebody was probably ticked when they dropped that into the deep! Hey - maybe it was used as a fishing weight in one of its previous lives.

    Regarding to it being slid by a shift fork, it looks to have a hole for a roll pin that would have rigidly attached it to the shaft. But it’s possible that the shaft moved with it. Doesn’t seem designed to be engaged/disengaged though.
