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.

YES!!!! Thank you.

That's what it is. Now I have to find one. After about an hour of looking I haven't come up with anything. Guess I'll try the dealer.

I pulled the timing cover and changed all the guides and oil pump chain. I really wanted to use a one piece timing chain. It's not a difficult job when the engine is out of the car.

The paint job is coming along. Past scheduled completion date and over budget. I haven't been in a rush to have it back. Want to get the engine work done first.
