Found this hose , it goes through the rear frame member on the right side at the rear trailing arm. There is a grommet to prevent the hose from rubbing. I think it might be a vestige from the old motor prior to the engine conversion.

That hard plastic elbow indicates that is a vent tube from the bottom of a charcoal canister.

Thank you Ian. I was pretty sure it was part of the old system. There should be a sticky titled "Name This Part" It would be entertaining and informative.

That is part of the fuel tank venting system........ Not the engine. Even if you had an engine swap, you still have the charcoal filter for venting. I'd reinstall it as it should be.
Inside the Right Rear Wheel area.........

255-035-479 Looks like the base for the rear speaker pods on non A/C equipped vans.

255 843 188 There is a rubber bumper strip that covers the upper slider door track and that piece finishes off the rear of it. My non campers have it.

another great call eeebee, thanks! You guys amaze me with your spatial recognition and memory. I was left with a box of parts after the conversion. I will post some of them on the karma thread once everything is identified.

I realized as soon as I read your post, yep, I have no middle seat, I removed the tracks. And the brackets must of been removed at the shop and thrown in the box. Thanks again.

FYI! The hose in greebly's orig post is probably part of cost cutting on VW's part. That is a vent for the EVAP charcoal canister. In '87 and older Vanagons that hose went back into the engine compartment and hooked up to the clean side of the air filter housing.
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Hose connection is at end of tape measure on an '84.
On the '88 and later when VW cheaped out on buying 4' of hose they just stuck that into the frame with a rubber grommet.
Whenever the engine is above idle the EVAP valve opens and air is drawn into the bottom of the charcoal canister through that hose.
No problem? That is right next to the wheel and if you do any driving on dirt/gravel/no roads dirt will go in there also. There is a small filter in the bottom of the canister which can get packed with dust/dirt. Then the pressure in the fuel tank will be drawn lower than atmospheric. The top of the tank can get pushed down until the van is stopped. The EVAP valve is closed at idle, no more connection to the intake manifold.
The top of the tank pops back up to normal, CLUNK.
I fixed mine by buying another charcoal canister from a junk yard and ran a hose from that bottom fitting into the engine area. Hooked it up to a aftermarket crankcase breather filter made for motorcycles and hot rods.
No trouble in over 15 years.
I don't think I have to mention that it took a looong time to get this figured out.
I can post a photo of the 'fix' in my '89 if anyone needs it.

Found this while under my van tonight. It's a black box with an exposed nipple sticking out behind the spare tire carrier on the driver side.

What is this and is something supposed to be connected to it?

EGR / oxygen sensor mileage counter. 90.15 in the Bentley. Looks like your speedo cables bypass it now, which I believe is just fine. Others I am sure know more than I.

Wow, Thanks!

Did you already know what this was and looked up the page # in the Bentley or was there some way you looked it up directly in the Bentley and found out what it was?

Trying to be more self-sufficient....

I've seen this on a couple dashboards, but never really knew what it was for. Best guesses so far are an antenna for some reason, or a socket for a map light (thanks to detroitzoran on reddit), but I can't find a mention of that light anywhere.
