    Fuel + oil line question

    I am in the mist of putting together my ski after I fully disassembled the entire ski and don't remember where a few of the fuel/oil lines go (please note, none of these pictures are my ski, I didnt remember to take pictures and it was too dark out--though I do have a 99 gsxl):

    These two fuel lines obviously exit the 'T' from the fuel baffle but I don't remember where on the hull. There looks to be 3 possible exits (besides the ones on the pump shoe) that I can think of that breathers/check valves stick out; the left side of the ski right under the bumper rail, the right side under bumper rail and just below the seat latch. Which/what valve and breather goes where?

    Which two do i use? I heard somewhere that some stock batteries had breathers or a line that exited the ski, was one used for the 951 battery? (1999 seadoo gsxl)

    I know the main oil line from the bottom of the oil tank goes into the case but where do the two tiny oil pump lines stick into? I still plan on using the oil pump.

    Last question, which is a little silly but...I do not remember how the cables were reinserted back into the steering column hole. For some reason, there isn't enough of a gap in between the steering column and the opening:

    I installed some aftermarket handlebars and some 3" rox risers and haven't changed anything else

    Thanks!

    Each should have a different fit.

    Oil lines run to the bottom of the carb mounts.

    Vent off has tank runs up then t's off. One goes up under hood and the other goes to port side of the ski towards the front of the ski.

    Each of the grommets that exit the ski are the same size.

    Thanks Joe, I got the fuel lines all set up besides the 4th baffle > carb line. It was too dark when I finished to hook it up. I forgot about the little nozzle nipples or whatever under the carbs that the oil pump lines run to. I have my new long block stored in shrink wrap and didnt have it for reference.

    I managed to get the steering cables through the opening so I should be all set, thanks everyone

    If you have any questions just call me. No matter how dumb they are. I'd rather see a ski go together correctly by asking than someone screw a ski up because a simple question wasn't asked!!

    Sounds good man, thanks. It's a good thing you're in CT just in case I have problems that a qualified mechanic needs to do. I'm hoping I can get my alternator installed in my truck and engine inside my seadoo before Weds to enjoy the 74 degree weather.
