Mmmm.....just from staring at that particular assembly for a long time 
one day, and then seeing it called a "damper" somewhere, i made the 
assumption that it is just that...(doh!:)

It softens teh phtphptphtpht of the fuel pump, into a more controled 
stream, so that the pulses aren't pulsing against the injectors.....hey! 
it sounds good!:)

as for taking one apart....well, i just might do that...:)

if no one decides they want it, i'll be sure to put it on my projet
