Detail of the forward end of the rocket engine.

I didn't recognize the curved duct running horizontally off to the left end of this photo, so I took another picture of it. It is apparently the fuel vent collector manifold. It attaches to the fuel pump discharge cooldown valve farther clockwise around the engine and is apparently used when performing engine chilldown.
