That device keeps your engine and gearbox from surging forward under
hard braking or going down steep hills.  It is very important to keep
this maintained (don't ask how I know this!).

Do not put any forward or reverse pressure on this when tightening, as
it can crack you OD over time - just a gentle  slightly firm
compression of the bushes on the frame, even front and back, is ideal.
