What is this part and where does it go?

It seems to have fallen out of the engine compartment somewhere.

Guess I gave it away with the 2nd pic...

Actually its the #3 exhaust valve.

Plain old metal fatigue resulting from
repeated thermal cycling and excessive employment.

This head has a lot of miles on it, though not as many
as the block that was nearing 500 k. Now, the head
is toast due to a $10 part, the block seems to
be ok.

Guess this would be a great reason to use
stainless exhaust valves.
