What does this part do?

Totally unimportant question for the engine guys.  Just curious.  I was
rebuilding my motor this weekend for the first time with my buddy Jason, and
we were debating the purpose of this part:

_k1_k2.bmp

11B - right bottom corner.  It's labeled as "PLATE, OIL".  11391-20F20

 

It slots into a dished out area in the other crankcase half.  It doesn't
look strong enough to reinforce anything, and if it's just blocking oil
flow. why isn't the other crankcase half designed to be solid there instead?

 

Thanks

Greg
