The tube is the stabilizer bar, I think.  Moves back and forth 
perpendicular to the path of the hose as the wheels turn.    You have to 
pay attention that when you snug up the Banjo Bolt fastening the high 
pressure hose to the rack, you also don't turn the fitting clockwise enough 
the hose comes in contact with the bar.  I tucked a multi-folded towel 
under the hose while doing the final tightening to maintain a little 
distance.   You'll see the paint worn off the top of that bar in the hose 
contact region on most Type 44's.
