86 Chevy c10 fuel cell help

Hey guys, my buddy has an 86 with the 350 motor in it. It was propane injected at one time, truck hasnt been touched in years, but hes adding a fuel cell to it, not sure what kind it is, i believe its an RCI. Its got one port at the top of the tank i believe for a breather/vent. And 2 ports at the bottom. The truck has the fuel pump block off plate off and there is a new fuel pump on the block now like at one point the truck was going to get converted over to gas. There are 2 spouts on the pump.......fuel inlet and fuel outlet? i was wondering what it would take to hook this fuel cell up and what all is needed. Block off one port and run a line off the other one to the pump, then from the pump to the carb? Its been awhile since i have messed with a carbed motor so any help is greatly appreciated.

you answered your own question.
don't forget to put a ground wire on the cell to ground it THEY WILL CATCH FIRE CAUSED BY STATIC ELECTRICITY
