Default What are These?

I'm a beginning to learn more about my 1983 Toyota pickup and am clueless as to the funtion of several parts on my engine. A few items I would like to know are: the funtion of the green cylindrical thing in the photo and the circular disk with two hoses coming off of the distributer? any knowledge would be cool. Thanks

The green cylindrical thing is just a connector. It is the connection between the distributor and the rest of the engine harness. You would disconnect it if you wished to remove the distributor from the engine.

The circular disc with the hoses is the vacuum advance and retard for the ignition spark timing. It makes the spark happen sooner or later in the combustion process depending on conditions to switch between power & fuel economy settings.
