The piece you have circled is the vacuum flux equalizer. Without this piece all will go well until something else flux up. That piece was basically put there to make assembly a breeze. It only fit the modulator one way and eliminated errors at the point of assembly. Not needed unless you are a perfectionist. Top line to transmission and bottom to back of engine. Pretty easy to remember. Have a Great Day.
