My understanding is the black vacuum hose is 3.5mm ID, and the green hose is 4.5mm ID (#s 22 and 23 in the link below):

https://www.bughaus.com/beetle134.htm

I know the black is used for advance signal and green is retard signal on the DVDA distributors- the ports on both the distributor vacuum can and the carburetor conform to this. The green hose is also apparently correct for the venting on the fuel tank. I am not sure about the ports on either the intake or the air cleaner on later models as I have never had that setup- I'd go with the same as Zunddfolge's setup pictured above with the black hose from intake to air cleaner thermostatic valve and the green hose from thermostatic valve to snorkel.

On European cars the green hose is red...

I know the green hose only for the retard signal on the DVDA distributors (which are very rare in Europe).

I already posted this in "what did you do to your bug today" thread. but considering there's a thread specifically for engine bays, here it is:

SSSooo agree with your comment about that horrific pulley nut on Xevins engine. Laughing

You have a great looking engine. One note, your carb manifold rubber boot clamps are upside down. The screw/tightening portion of the clamp should be at the bottom so they don't cut your plug wires.
