Both the vent and supply fuel lines come out of the top of the tank from the sending unit. They join the lines mounted on the frame rail with hoses.

Each line is separate. The supply and vent return tubes come out of the sending unit. The return line brings back fuel from the external fuel filter to the tank. It is just that the lines run along the underside of the car next to each other. They do not tee together.

Look in the Assembly Manual in Section UPC L35, B1-B2. You will see exactly what you need.

Question

I've got a question regarding fuel lines. My 69 has a single line. I've installed an electric fuel pump near the tank and was wondering how I would go about adding a return line. Is this a matter of adding a Tee and return line before the carb? Does the return line need to be a smaller line? I'm not sure how the pressure would be held constant a 7 psi without some kind of check valve. Any ideas?
