On mine the hard line fitting comes up out of the left tire well and has a regular fuel hose(w/can filter inline) going to the "t" to each carb. There are two metal tabs which I looped around the "t" to kind of secure it but other than that the hose/filter just flops around. (?!).
The factory "filters" in each carb inlet fitting should be super clean and stay that way with a can filter.

Definitely check for leaks, old hoses, and that everything moves nice. I rebuilt my carbs a year ago and had some experiences. Almost burnt up the car when the cheapo needle valves stuck open(in the up position!) and there was gas spouting out of the bowl vent tubes. I wondered why the car started smoking and the oil level was to the fill cap.
Get the PMO float level gauge and the airflow meter to balance them.
