Gas tank help

Just purchased a three vent gas tank for a 1971 pontiac GTO that i have been trying to put together. The tank was missing when i got it, and in the trunk was a boat tank. I have found a web site listing fuel sending units and other parts. How would i know if i need a two line or single line?
Thanks in advance.

Off the top of my head, and not an owner of a '71, you most likely need the 2 line. One supplies gas to your fuel pump and the other 1/4" line is the return line which should also be found on the fuel pump.

I suspect one line may also be the vent tube on the tank. Some as I recall are on the filler neck, while others are on the tank depending on year.

Your 1971 chassis manual should show this.

Really doesn't matter as it seems all posts are "archived" and fall into a subject search -besides, who really checks the posting date? I don't and didn't, but it did get a reply and if the OP were to die tomorrow, he can at least die knowing someone answered the post and can "rest in peace."

The OP hasn't been active here since July 2005 so I doubt that this is high on his priority (or bucket) list.....

I appreciate your response. It's an issue for me, which is why I opened it back up. There were no responses back then, but it's a question and someone was able to help.
Good job
