Need help identifying this part?

Just finished replacing the upper intake manifold gasket and the EGR pipe and found this sitting on the intake. Any idea what it is and where it goes?

Welcome to the forum

I assume its a Ranger
What year and what engine, there were two different 4.0l engines?

Its the 4.0l OHV, 1990 to 2000 Rangers, 2001 and up used the 4.0l SOHC

I have taken my 1994 4.0l OHV apart many times, lol, some times needed but just to do it other times, and never seen anything like that

May have been left there during previous work, is there a part number on it anywhere, there will be if its a Ford Part

There you go, those pesky "extra parts", lol

Its not uncommon for mechanics to stick an extra part on the new guys work bench to get a laugh watching him try to figure out where it goes or came from on the vehicle he's working on.
