Abstract: Let *G* be a finite group with , *A* a standard component of *G* and *X* the normal closure of *A* in *G*. Furthermore, assume that has cyclic Sylow 2-subgroups. Then conditions are given on *A* which imply that either or has Sylow 2-subgroups of order 2. These results are then applied to the cases where *A* is isomorphic to or *Ru*, proper 2-fold covering of the Rudvalis group.
