That is a crankshaft trust bearing, hopefully you didn't find it on the garage door....
Those channels are for lubrication and should be installed on the correct orientation

KJC, according to the book, the oiling grooves go against the crankshaft, hopefully this helps!

Ok, now you have to share the backstory... how did you come to find that and not know where it came from? Inquiring minds and all that...
