Mystery *orifice* in 2.4L breather tube

A few weeks ago, I posted my experience trying to locate a valve cover-to-a= ir box tube for a 1st generation cloud car with a 2.4.=20
I was persistent, and a more experienced parts person at the dealer was abl= e to finally identify the tube, and come up with a part#, to order a replac= ement. The original tube, as an *orifice* looking thing that sits sideways = in the tube, just before the 90 degree bend. The new tube has no such thing= . I salvaged the orifice, but did not install it in the new one.=20
Does anyone know what this i supposed to do, and if I should try to install= it in the new one? I have checked a couple of cars at the salvage yard whe= n I was there last, and they has this item too.
It nice back in the days when Chrysler Techs frequented this news group. Th= ey usually had the answers.=20
Thanks,
KM

Even though I'm not even sure what you are talking about I will exercise my USENET prerogative and offer an opinion anyways.... Usually orifices are used to restrict flow so perhaps there was a need to limit the amount of air that could flow thru that tube at high throttle openings so that a bunch of oil cloud didn't get sucked into the intake when the engine was operating at high rpm.

got any pictures of its location and hookup?
