Fuel Line Question

Ive got two questions reguarding my brothers 84 CJ7.
We just put the gas tank and new gas lines on last weekend. I wasnt sure which lines went where so I had to make some educated guesses, but Im not sure if its right or not. There are two lines comming out of the sending unit, one goes to the fuel pump on the passengers side, i think the other goes to the charcoal canister on the drivers side. I ran the gas tank vent line up to the fuel filter. Does that sound right to everybody.

I had some trouble with this same thing, it is not easy... two lines come from tank, one that is bigger goes to fuel filter then to fuel pump - up to carb.. hard line comes from carb down driver side of engine and goes all the back to rollover check-valve(in corner space behind rear tire) then to return port on tank... check this site out it might help if I haven't..

That is a Great site. I think Ive seen it before but never really looked at it. Thanks.

On a side note, since I have new lines these have to be primed. What is the best way of doing that? I was just turning the motor over. Will that do the job if I do it long enough??
Thanks agian

TG CJ7,

Yes just turning over the engine will prime the lines, I have just done the same thing "Replacing all fuel lines".
