Default Need help identifying A/C components

So my A/C stopped working and I've been working on fixing it. I can jump the compressor using the low pressure switch. Everything engages properly so I figured there was a leak. Last night I filled the system with refrigerant and dye and found the leak. Now I need to buy the part to replace the leaking area. I've included pictures of the UV dye coming out and of the part I need to replace. It was just about gushing out of this spot and I'm not sure what it is. It is on the high pressure line on top of the A/C compressor next to what I think is the high pressure switch. It looks to be a bleeder valve of sorts? I've looked at the A/C parts diagram on the ford parts website. I'll include the link to where the diagram is. Thanks in advance.

For some reason it won't let me upload the UV picture with the leak. You can see it in the zoomed in picture. Its leaking right out the top of that bronze valve looking thing.
