Thats your flywheel that the starter motor engages, no oil needed. Behind the flywheel is your torque converter, filled with ATF (automatic transmission oil.

+1 I knew it didn't need oil (just my mind went blank for the name)

Yes It's between engine and transmission. I think i spayed a little engine degreaser to the flywheel when I was cleaning oil pan rail. That's why it has a little rust on it. I am curious if I should use WD40 on the wheel?

the teeth look so dry, so that's the way it's supposed to be? Thanks

That's normal there is no need to waste oil because the only thing that it works with besides the crankshaft is the starter(which is only in contact with the flywheel when you start the engine)

The flywheel on most engines(mostly small hobby and mower engine) is out in the open I know I have two hobby grade cars and the flywheel is exposed so don't worry about it man these things are built to last the life of the engine trust me I know

Transmission bell housing, no need for lube it will jus give another place for dirt to stick
