So what is this actuator lookin' thing on the left side of the engine on my Case/IH 685. I have a couple of guesses, but my wife says I'm always wrong.

Looks like the previous owner also thought it was not needed and removed the electric wires to the actuator AND the small plastic line to the manifold that would feed the ether in.
Does your tractor have glow plugs? Most tractors with ether start like that didn't have glow plugs.
