Ok I am trying to hook up my fuel cell in my 1985 Mazda RX7 Carb. Engine.

There are 3 lines coming off the stock fuel tank,

These 2 are going directly to the carberator:

I was guessing one was the feeder line and one was a return line? Someone told me I do not need a return line with a carb? Can anyone confirm this and if so what do I do with the line?

The 3rd line off the tank is going to this, (Charcole Canister?) do I need to tie this line into the cell? Or can I just ditch this line? Do I just plug it or what?

Any help would be appreciated!

The 3rd line going to the charcoal canister is for smog purposes. It is part of the evaporative system.

my toy is carb'd, with the same 3 lines...bypassed the charcoal line altogether-not smog legal, but it runs fine...straight from the pump to the carb. the other is a return line- goes back into the cell, though i never got a drop of fuel back out of it?????

Might as well ditch the line for the smog. If your running a cell without the proper fill neck, it really doesn't matter if you run it or not..

Ok I got it hooked up.

I ditched the smog line.

The return line I ran back into the feeder line and it works great. Runs like a champ!
