Isn't this temperature sensor?

Check the markings and try burton power.

It looks like part of the emissions crap fitted to later pinto engined cars like Sierras. You don't need any of it but you will need to put that or another bolt in the manifold to seal the hole

My guess is, looks like a cold start idle-up air valve throttle bypass thing , goes into the coolant jacket and closes off as the coolant heats up ........cant think whats is called πŸ€” could be for the emissions too Peter-S , like a vacuum air valve ,def coolant temp activated.πŸ™‚
