Working on a 97 Maxum with 5.7L stern drive alpha One gen 2 and I replaced some seals on the upper drive.
Got to the water compartment below the top cover and there is a mystery ball in there I cannot tell what it is. I tapped a bit and it did go down very little. I am including a picture of it.

On the flip side it's the oil hole that takes a little O-ring when connecting the 2 drives, I don't know if they connect. I just want to make sure that by me tapping it and moving the ball a bit I didn't cause some issues.
Thanks in advance for any info.

I just jb-welded it to be sure there is no cracks after hammering it down a bit. put the drives back together checked pressure at 10psi and it held fine.
