There was an excellent write up on how to replace the fuel pump done by PFF member "Brocephus" link is below:

Fuel pump replacement

There is a lot of pic's, it might help you determine where the lines connect to if yours hasn't been disturbed to much.

Hope this helps, good luck

Its the three small metal lines (and hoses) you're struggling with I assume?

Note they are three different sizes. Check the hoses. The largest two hoses (probably 3/8" and 5/16" I.D. respectively if I remember right) are for the fuel feed and return lines which run side-by-side up to the fuel rail (easy to tell which is which - the filter is located on the feed line). The smallest hose is for the Evap canister and its the one that doesn't head up to the fuel rail, obviously. On later cars, the Evap line is routed differently that how its shown in that linked thread. Anyway, the hoses should all fit properly back on the three metal lines from the pump I would think unless someone has replaced them and used the wrong sizes. You could probably measure the O.D of the metal lines to be sure.

ok , had this with me on my thumb drive


Heres what I think it is, maybe someone else can confirm
The green line is the fuel line to the engine, red to vapor canister, and blue is the return fule line.

I'll see if I have anything else when I get home.

I agree. Note the double hose clamps on the fuel feed line.

Its hard to hook the lines up wrong. The fuel feed line is 3/8" fuel injection line while the return line is 5/16" fuel injection line.
While you are at it ; its a good idea to replace the 30+ YR old fuel fill line elbow connection. They do crack and if they do at the next stop when you gas up and start, the car goes boom!
