TR8 Carbon Canister plumbing

When I got my TR8, the plumbing had been rather creatively redone. I think the main guiding principle had been to connect things that were physically close to each other and had similar hose diameters. Surprisingly, bad things happened. And then I bought the car.

So I have two lines exiting the transmission tunnel. One looks like it might be a vent line from the fuel tank. The hard line bends to the right, and the flexible bit at the end was connected to the carbon canisters.

The other line bends to the left and had been capped off, dangling in the engine bay.

Not having seen an unmolested TR8 engine bay, can someone please enlighten me as to where they should be going?

Hi Brent,

Was your car originally fuel injected? If so, that is the fuel return line.
