its a vaccum switch. it might be ticking because of a faulty earth? ie: swithcing on and off rapidly.

it appears that its a vac line going to the upper side fo the convertors' diaphragm. Normally this is just vented to atmosphere.

Otherwise i have NFI

that is the solenoid that controls the mixture under closed loop.
it is supposed to do what you said it was doing.
just leave it alone, don't touch it.
unless you are experiencing a problem.

you are better of not having that thing solid mounted to the body, you can hear them clicking away inside the car while driving.
you should just cable tie it to a rubber hose or something. thats what i did with mine.
