picked up what was supposed to be the right horseshoe tank for my 74 shovel in stock frame. ne wtank is supposed to be for a 74 fxe which s what i have.

has 3 inlets for fittings - all look like 1/8 npt. so far so good. the thing i dont get is that they are ALL on the bottom of the oil tank. i get having the feed line down there but why is the return at the bottom of the tank? does it matter which line goes to which fitting? on the stock square tank there are 2 fittings at top - 1 looks like its the return to go through the in-tank filter while the other may be an overflow/vent or something?

last thing i want is to starve the engine.
