What is this and where do I get a new one?

I'm doing the timing chain on my 1972 350sl 4.5. I tore it down and found this in between the harmonic balancer and the crankshaft timing sprocket. It shows damage from the oil pump chain and has a crack at the key way.

I don't know what it's called and cannot find it on the EPC.

I'm thinking it's probably an oil slinger.

How deep you going into that thing, and how's the paint job coming? Probably done by now!
