Default Blackjack 55 fuel tank hookup to engine

I developed a leak my fuel tank in my Blackjack 55. After a lot of searching I managed to find a new tank- PRB2658.
The engine is a Zenoah 26cc.
The tank has two feeds on it- one on top of the other and both at the bottom of the tank.
In my infinite wisdom, I did not note where the lines attached to the engine.

Would anyone happen to know the hook up of these two line, or point me to a site with some content on this. I can not find anything on the WEB relating to this hook up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Doug

Only the fuel line really needs to be hooked up as the vent line really doesn't do much. That'll be the line hooked up to the primer button. Leaving it unhooked will also help the tank to vent better as a lot of times the boat can die as the vent in the fuel caps sometimes doesn't work too well. Look for the lower line to hook up to the carb.
