Default 93 sportster oil line routing

I need some help double checking oil line hookups on my sportster. On the oil pump itself there are 2 lines that go to the oil tank. I need to verify which ones go where. I have the service manual but it does not show enough of a detailed picture to check which one goes where. Can anyone tell me where each one goes maybe a picture too haha. Thanks guys.

The service manual doesnt state which lines are the vent, feed, and or return lines, no diagram, or color coded chart. My factory service manual has a detail about the whole oiling system but it's not with me. I will get it tomorrow and post back but hopefully someone will be able to offer more help before then...

I have a 93. I will look at the oil line tomorrow and let you know where each line connects.

Sorry about the blurryness. The best I could do. Hope this helps.

What about the lines at the pump itself? Thanks guys and jharback the diagram with the oiltank and all of the components listed is great (2nd pic) I have the generic where it shows the routing like the first pic. What I need to know is which line is what on the oil pump. I am wondering if I have them mixed up.

Yeah, it's the Harley Service Manual. They just can't be beat. I'd also recommend a Harley Parts Catalog. It's real nice because it has blow ups of all the parts and how they fit together.

Okay one more question instead of using the typical worm clamps I wanted to use the stock harley style. I am getting ready to order the crimp tool online but what size clamps do I need? I confused on the type I know they should be stepless ear clamps.
