hello everyone
looking for some help , i have purchased a new fuel pump for my first type 4 rebuild , and I'm having trouble with the lines on it

i have a dual carb set up , but I'm not sure where to route the lines from the pump i started hooking up , one line to a tee to both carbs and another line from the fuel tank.
but as you can see in my photo the one outlet not hooked up , so what and where does the line go??

please help guys , maybe I'm missing the obvious ?? but I'm not sure , thx again guys
cory

Connect a 6-8" length of small line to it and stick it through the hole at the front bottom of the RH sled tin.

It's a drain in case of the unlikely but not impossible chance the diaphragm ruptures.
