starting at the rear.
You have a fuel line running from the chassis framehorn to the metal line on the engine. It is underneath the car.
Metal line to the fuel pump
fuel pump to the carb.
At the front.
Fuel line on bottom of tank to the frame head. Blow thru the framehead line that goes to the rear of the car to clean it out and make sure it is open.
On top of the tank:
Large rubber hose to large metal pipe to large rubber hose to fill neck
On the fill neck is about a 3/4 pipe that screws in. Elbow to the pipe, then large t fitting with small vent line in middle, then hose to the end of the fuel tank.
You are going to disconnect all other hoses including the plastic pipe that runs across the car under the cowling that has 2 nipple on each end. Just get rid of it. Get rid of the black cannister.
Now there is a small pipe nipple next to the filler neck in the tank . Run a hose from it to the plastic "t" (small nipples). Run another to from the nipple off the large t to this small t. Now run a piece of hose from the remaining nipple across the top of the tank all the way around to where the wires go down through the body on the right side of the tank Just run this hose about a foot down thru next to the wiring for ventilation. Now on the right top side of the tank, hook the 2 nipples together with a piece of hose.
This way you are venting thru the one single hose and doing away with all the other smog hoses.
