Need help to install a new fuel tank

First of all, sorry for my ignorance.
I bought a fuel tank and I'm questioning the installation. The tank comes with two hose fittings, a thick and thin. The problem is that the thick is loose and after attached in the tank, I do not know where should I fit into the other side of the hose or even the hose should be loose. Please, I need help ...

Thank you.

Download the service manual and start with that. It's hard for me to understand without pictures of what you are trying to do.

Download the US version. right to your desktop. about 108 megs so might take a little while. But it's worth it. Hope that helps.

This may help.
The overflow and breather hoses are open to the outside (unless it's California model where the vent hose goes to the charcoal cannister).

The fuel return hose attaches to the fuel pressure regulator output, while the fuel feed hose attaches to the throttle body banjo bolt.

Now, the title states SP1-SP2 but the manual itself is only for the 1's...

If you download the one for US Version, it covers sp1's and sp2's.

ĽUS VERSION RC51 Factory Service Manual SP-1 and SP-2 108.2 Mb

There are many references of '00 - '01, and, after '01. Not exactly explicit, but 'after 01' means SP2.

First thank you all for your attention.
In the photo posted by subsailor, you can see exactly what I'm talking about . It's the overflow hose. The hose is connected to the tank the same way as shown. The problem is that I do not know what to do with the other end.
Anyone know what should I do?
Thank you again...
