Cam chain tensioner. In early years like yours the oil was supplied by an external line from the oil gallery. Internal passage in later years.

It's really important that the tensioner work correctly.

so it is a cam chain tensioner? Or the fitting that sends oil to the tensioner through the line?

^Don't understand what you're asking. What you circled is the cam chain tensioner with the oil line attached to it. The other end of the supply line bolts to the right side of the upper crankcase near the front.
