Injector Hell

My Mechanic found this in the bottom of the Injector cone, which has to be replaced, passenger side, so AC box, coolant = A lot of Work....



He says it's not magnetic, and not Copper.

A little bigger than a 7.3 copper seal and the tip fit thru it into the head.

Scary Part..... It's was crushed into pieces and he cannot locate the other piece or pieces.

Fear is it's on the top of the piston and may bend a valve once cranked.

Best case is it melted and already passed.

Anyone have any idea what this is or how it got and stayed in the head or was it attached to the injector?

Heads were replaced with reman's and injectors done at same time.

It ran fine for 3 months.

At first i saw the dime and was like

It's definitely metal, injector cup was cleaned and verified to be intact so its not the seat base.

Jesse thought it might have been a double copper washer, but it's bigger than a 6.0 or 7.3 Cu washer.

It was torqued and ran almost perfect for 3 months until the 1 day.....

How could it have fit properly in the cone with another washer below it?

Spoke with National Cyl. Head, they've never seen anything like it on their end either.

Best guess is it was stuck to the injector when it was installed, where or how it got on it is anyone's guess.

Cranking soon with fingers crossed, it's only $14K for a new engine.
