#1 is the "altitude correction capsule" (the tube is just a vent)

#2 Looks like a resistor

The famed free HP resistor? Is that thread still going in the hot-rods forum?

Thanks all...

So "2" is the famed R16 huh.... I would have never guessed...

What's the function of "1"?

As langfeife stated, it is an altitude correction sensor. It gives the fuel management system information on altitude.
