Default Identify this part from a 30 series torque converter

This may sound ridiculous but I cannot find a replacement part online/what it's even called. As you can tell it's a washer type thing that goes on the driver clutch. This is off of an eBay torque converter and I need another one. Someone, please help!

Usually called pilot bushings. That one has a slot cut in it.

I always seem to find that people swap them out for regular thick washers and I've never had a problem without them things. I can see that they would keep things straight but when slid together and held with a good washer and bolt, you would wonder how it could go off track anyway as it's held in place with that other gadget that slides over the crank shaft.....

I've used washers before and they work fine for the most part, however, I don't like using washers and I've had problems with the drive pulley being loose when I use washers. Thanks for replying to this thread though!
