Is it a pressure regulator?

Hi all, in my quest to get the mk 1 running I have a couple of questions :- from the fuel filter outlet the pipe runs uphill to a ledge where the pipe goes into what looks like a regulator, the exit pipe then joins to the metal pipes leading to the injectors, is this correct?
I am getting fuel up to the injector rail but when I disconnected the return line from the pressure regulator no fuel comes out when the engine is cranked (which I would expect it to?). It is a new fuel pump as the previous one was failing and filter. If anyone can shed any light on what's what it would be appreciated. I have a good spark but no fuel appears to be being injected. Many thanks Mac
