I was tearing apart the 289 today and found a rod in the bottom end, it was just laying there. It's about 7.5" long tappered on one end and has a retainer clip on it. What is it? since it was just laying there did it damage anything? TIA! It is not a connecting rod!!!

If the rod is hexagonal in shape, it's the oil shaft. Sounds like it, because of the retainer.

Replace it with the heavy duty version during your rebuild.
