Valve float housing?

On the rear float chamber there is the float valve that sits in its housing labeled 3.0 with the keikhin K on it. What is this part called? It feels like it is tapped into the float chamber.

This little housing piece has two holes in it. That piece on the R float chamber is positioned to where the two holes look to allow fuel through. On the F float chamber, the "float valve housing" is positioned where the two holes are blocked.

Is this a problem?

What are these holes for? There is no part number listed.... The piece is located where the part#16030 fits in on the float chamber and has two holes in it I assume to allow fuel to flow through.

The magnifying glass threw me off .That is a hole in the seat housing for the needle valve the hole to the right is for one side of the u-shaped float hanger pin that fits in the hole and then into the groove it is in.

Why the hole is there I am not sure, unless it is helps fuel flow into the float chamber when the needle is off the seat,It has been awhile since I have been into those siamesed carbs.
