1982 S&S newbie blower location and vent hose location

I have a 1982 S&S and Iím trying to figure out where to mount the blower and how your supposed to run the vent hoses? The owner before me had the blower mounted under the engine cover not hooked up with no vent house. Any help would be greatly appreciated and any pictures showing this would also help.

The vent hose on my 81 runs from the intake vent on the bow, down into the bilge. Then another hose starts under the engine and runs to the rear entrance around the fuel tank. The blower is mounted in the rear, I think on the underside of the rear deck

Yes the blower is mounted above the fuel tank under the rear deck - center . On my 83 it's under the star on the transom deck. The hose runs under the flooring to pull vapors away from the engine compartment- and the exhaust hose goes to the exhaust vent on the rear of the boat . Hope this helps
