That is the "fuel filter" warning light vacuum switch, when the filter becomes plugged, it will cause the dash light to come on. Very common leakage issue. Most guys just replace it with a 1/8" NPT pipe plug from a hardware store, if you do that, make sure to keep up on filter maintenance.

if you've got bolts left over, you've saved money over the factory and saved weight
