Pic 1 =
Top connector is Fuel Inlet
Bottom connector is Fuel Return

Pic 2 = Im not sure, sumart to do with petrol vapour. not sure

Pic 3 = Pipe which goes from your carb inlet elbow to the gold connector.

Pic 4 = Oil sensor.

Ive just finished a clio conversion atm and just done my top end rebuilt with uprated parts. I found a haynes manual to be quite useful for the rest of the hoses.

Picture 1 - Top pipe is fuel in, bottom pipe is connected to a vacumn hose from the carb elbow, the standard boost guage is also plumbed into this.

Picture 2 - This needs to have a pipe fitted and left open, it needs to be as far away from the exhaust as possible. It is somekind of safeguard if one of the gaskets in the carb fail and it will pour petrol out everywhere. Someone else might be able to explain better exactly why its there.

Picture 3 - Not sure which one you mean, the large brass pipe is a vacumn pipe connected to the actuator on the turbo, the small one with the 90 degree bend is the vacumn pipe for the ECU (dump valves and aftermarket boost guages are also 'T'ed into this). Two large connections on the manifold, ones for the brake master cylinder, the other for the oil breathers. Sensor on the base of the carb is the anti perc fan sensor.

Picture 4 - Turbo oil feed, sensor is the oil pressure sender.
