914-6 oil tank install

I am looking for a picture taken from inside the engine bay that would show how the oil tank and filer neck and hoses are to sit. I have all the seals, fittings and hoses and am in the process of setting it up but I would feel better seeing a picture of how it is supose to go before cutting all these holes.

Thanks-

Your '71 will already have the indentations in the drivers side of the engine compartment for the holes to be drilled. just go look.

I see them, but before I start up the drill I would like to see a picture of how the lines are routed and how the filter and filler sits. Do you have a picture?

I have Detailed pictures in this thread of the holes cut if it's any help-only dont punch out the mounting holes for the tank studs. Just drill them.

Thanks for the pictures. I am wondering what the two small black lines are in the yellow teener? Fuel lines or maybe fuel vent lines, electrical? any ideas-

Emission vent hoses. One comes off blower housing and goes to charcoal canister in front trunk. The other is the return line from tank/canister/expansion chamber and goes to air cleaner. Keep fuel smell out of cabin and burns gas vapors from tank.

Thanks for the pictures, it really helps to see how it supose to go before sawing holes. Does anybody have any pictures from the other side that shows how the oil lines are routed from inside the fender well. Can I expect to make any other modifications to the engine bay such as to the wheather stripping shelf?
