Default compressor hoses from an SP point of view

I am going to change my compressor hoses for peace of mind knowing they have been changed. I have read the threads but have a question.
On my compressor I found one hose about 3/4" 16-18 inches long black heavy hose going from the compressor to the front of the engine block. I am pretty sure this is a water coolant hose. This hose is closest to the air radiator. I will say it is at the 6 o'clock position. I then have a braided hose going from the 12 o'clock position to a copper line beside the valve cover drivers side. I have not tried to follow this line. I have checked behind the starter and the is no connection there for a water hose.
Is this braided hose my second line I need to change?
thank you

My Guess is: a braided hose is usually the air pressure exit to the air dryer

Mine has a metal tube connected at the front of the engine and a braided water hose as well. Not sure which is in and which is out. In the pic the metal tube is obvious but the braided water connection runs diagonally from the curb side of the compressor head to the top of the block. It is hidden in a cloth loam. The governor was removed in this pic.

There are three lines. The black one in the far back (6 o'clock) I am sure is a water line as it goes to the block. The braided one (3 o'clock) I am told is an air line and goes to a copper line beside the valve cover on the driver side, the third one is hard piped (12 o'clock) So should I presume I only have one line to change?

Don't over estimate that hard line. I had that one break about a year ago. Nothing catastrophic, it cracked just at the lower fitting and the fan blew it all over so it was hard to tell where it came from. Granted, my bus is quite a bit older than yours, but it did break.
If I had it to do over I would NOT buy the $50.00+ line from Cat to replace it.

Not sure what time it is, but the two front facing hoses are top air pressure, and just below is the air intake to the compressor probably sucking from the 3208 air filter
