32 Vintique tank question

Guys, I've misplaced the paperwork for my gas tank. I've have a 327 Chev motor with a stock fuel pump and a 4 barrel carb. I'm using a Vintique tank for a32 highly.
there are 3 tubes coming out of the tank, which one runs to the pump? which one gets plugged and which is the vent?
I suspect the tube on the far right is the vent, ( looking towards the rear of the car), it exits higher and slightly to the rear of the tank.
of the other two which goes to the pump and which gets plugged thanks for your help. jim

This isn't a Vintique, but an early Tanks Inc, and how mine is hooked up and may help you. L to R is vent, gauge and pickup.

As a note, some of the early repros actually followed the original Ford with the gas pick up on the bottom. That is considered a safety hazard and should only be used as a plugged drain.

Another note - you may need a loop of fuel line and leading off to the outside of the car on the vent to control any gas odor. I ended up having to pipe a 3-4 inch stand off, then install the roll over valve, followed by that length of tubing into the L rear wheel well. That mod - no photos as it was installed after final assembly
