Default Inter M fuel line question.

Hi All Stakers, a question for all those that have renovated a Model "M" Inter engine. How does one fit the fuel return line "" to the brass TEE Piece on the top of the tank.?? Yes, I make the tanks but have never fitted one. A new renovator who has likewise "never fitted one" is asking me. Damn, I have no idea at all. Please help me. Cheers, John:

The return line goes to the big fitting that the fill pipe screws into. The "tee" on top of the fuel tank isn't a regular tee. One side has the pickup tube that goes down into the tank; the line from here attaches to the bottom of the fuel pump. The other side of the "tee" is the tank vent and is plumbed out through the hole in the base on the governor side.

Hello all
The return line is the brass one you can see.

Cheers Scott

The fuel lines are 3/8 OD tubing, with compression fittings for attachment.
