Hard to tell, but it looks like the A.I.R. diverted valve. Does the end of the hose connect to something on the belt drive that isn't a water pump?

Thatīs right. Here you can see a pic from the '69 FSM (same engine than '68) where you can see all the A.I.R. system parts and the place of the part you mark in your pic:

That's it, that's the one...

Where can I buy it from? I tried ebay but no luck for a 68 DeVille, there are a few listed for later models but nothing for a 68 DeVille. Mine one is cracked open and beyond repair.

Try rockauto.com, good source for finding parts.

I'm not positive, but I think Cadillac used the same AIR system (same valves) on all of the 472 engines. If rockauto doesn't have the valve, then one of the ones on eBay might work.

I canīt find any new part for that reference. Maybe you have to look for an used one in a junkyard. You can try http://aanationalautoparts.com They served me a good differential for my '69 and some other parts are on the way.
