The 138190051 Carburetor Plastic Insulator or Connecting Block is a short spacer or intake between the carburetor and the intake port on the cylinder head. 

The purpose of the insulator is to prevent heat from reaching the carburetor. If the carburetor gets too hot, it can cause fuel to evaporate and vapor lock the fuel system quickly. This is done because the engine's intended use is on stationary power equipment that relies mainly on the flywheel fan for cooling. The insulator also features a channel matching the carburetor for the fuel bowl vent. 

The carburetor insulator fits most of the 196cc 6.5hp Clone engines, including Honda GX200, Ducar 196, Ducar/Tillotson 212E, Tillotson 196R/RS, Tillotson 212R, Tillotson 225RS, Ducar/Tillotson 212E, Predator 212, and BSP 196 and 212 cylinder heads.
