Is this damaged? TA thrust plate groove

    Started reassembling my Skylark 350 today and noticed this groove in my TA Performance oil pump thrust plate. I'm assuming this is a manufacturing flaw but wanted to check to make sure. I'm assuming using it like this would cause oil pressure issues?

    You're good to go, the groove is there by design.
