Thermactor diverter valve, if it just got gas in it and it didn't set full of gas for a period of time it should be OK, but there is a rubber diaphragm inside, it is fairly heavy duty just because of the temp of the air moving through it. If it works when you pull a vacuum on it then great, it is hard to say how long it will last.

so where does the hose that's leading to item D connect to? Cause I connected it to the carburetor last time.

There should be a thermovalve in the intake manifold, but not where the pic is showing it, most of those were in the thermostat housing or just right behind it in the intake manifold.
