(You can toss it if you want, its purpose is to satisfy the EPA). The round plate should not slide up and down, it should be welded in place, it acts like a seal so that all of the exhaust gases are forced into the center of the tube and come out of the small holes drilled in the tube and then out.
Many, many thanks, sir! I will weld and reassemble that rascal tomorrow and hopefully get it back on the road.
