Id like to know what the bracket is on the drivers side shock tower but? Unless it was used to hold a gas converter or something?

Looks like another crankcase vent, I would imagine of the engine was fitted with LPG (as that backet suggests), the pipe would have been part of the LPG install.

the hose definitely looks like it has a crimped on fitting...... plus the bracket looks about eight for a convertor

I was thinking possibly for lpg, but it looked like it was one of those crimped on earth terminals. And was in about the right spot for the rocker cover bolt!

Your all wrong lol.
He used to have a second oil filter. We got rid of that, and bypassed the hose that went to it straight into the rocker cover.
It's where the return line used to be.
