No BTDT, but from your description, it sounds as though the missing
"nipple" is what gets pushed in on the ventilation valve when you push on
the clutch, resulting in shutting down the Cruise Control. I'd think that
taping over or otherwise sealing the tube permanently would eliminate the
feature that disconnects cruise when you step on the clutch. Probably not
a good idea.
