1302 Fuel (injection) tank, which is return pipe?

Hi,
I think i've got a 1302 injection tank, as it has 2 (8mm ish - certainly not 5.5mm or standard fuel line size) outlet tubes. One I've been informed is the fuel return. Now I figured I could just block the fuel return one, or use a T junction pipe shape thing and run the return into the main, as presumably it would have no effect as there is no return fuel. What's the best way, and what;s the best bung for a metal tube on the fuel tank - I was thinking a bolt into a rubber line then cable tie it.

Finally which tube of the two is the fuel return ?

Cheers

is it a new one from GSF?

personally if it was me, i`d T-juction the 2 together then use a GSF fuel filter to convert the 8mm to 6mm beetle line(if your still running original)

It's a new one from euro car parts, which is probably the same as GSF. Though GSF did assure me it was a carb model tank (I didn't get from them as they couldn't get it in time or something), but I didn't really trust them as all the new tanks for 1302 seem to be injection.

T-junctioning would be easiest for me, however if I went 8-6 fuel filter route, what' the code for that on GSF, as I can't find it.

Thanks

code?

its just a fuel T piece :confused: ?

the T piece part number is 18620 but thats for a 6mm one far as i know.

the fuel filter i see they have 3 listed which i dont get why, so you`d have to ring them and explain, normally the ones i buy are just an inline filter and they are stepped in such a way they can be used for either size fuel line.
