Fuel Water Seperator Hoses on 83 S&S

Can some one please tell me which hose goes to what side of the fuel water Seperator on a 1983 S&S? I forgot to mark them before I took them off!

I would if I knew... Here's the deal with all of the boats I have messed with of that era.... Fuel line to a fuel filter, filtered fuel to the carb. Never had a water separator on any of the early 80s for me. None of mine came that way... Just a filter canister and two simple lines.

If you are talking about the one and only fuel containment canister on your boat, I can elaborate (fuel filter) but a water separator in between the fuel cell and the carb is not something I am familiar.

Can you post a picture of the scenario?

I am pretty sure we are talking about the same canister. (The one the connects to the gas tank on the port side). There is one hose that goes from the tank to the canister and one that goes from the canister to the fuel pump. I just need to know which one goes on which side of the canister.

I have two connections. The fuel cell hose connects to the connection nearest the fuel cell. The other is to the fuel pump.

Went out to look at my filter setup and found a new barefoot suit on the door step...

Not really. However it may be the same component in a different place.. All I have seen are located on the stringer just under the mechanical fuel pump. Thus my reference of orientation (which may have seemed obvious to the most casual observer). Does your machine have another filter where I have described?

Nonetheless, hook up the fuel cell hose to the one closest to the fuel cell, and out to the pump. See how the hoses seem to fit in a reasonable manner. I know what you're saying, but I want to make sure that we are on the same page. It's pretty much an in and out pass-thru.

The fuel cell hose goes to the front connection showing in the picture. The fuel line to fuel pump will go on the other connection, probably running under the fuel cell and on up front.
