how to hook up homelite oil lines

Hello , I feel a bit embarassed about this post but I figure that it's better than beating my head against the wall!
I have a little homelite XL2 Auto chainsaw, it is the kind with dual throttle controls. I can't find a UT or a model # on it anywhere except the decal on the starter housing.
I took off all the oil lines a few months ago to replace all of them and the duckbill valve, and now I don't remember how they were routed. Ther are 2 ports (holes) on the oil tank , 2 ports directly inline with the chain oiler's output, and 1 port farther forward towards the front of the engine case. I'd greatly appreciate it if someone could tell me where the tubes go. I would save me having to hear my local saw shop guy howl with laughter when I brought the saw into him in a box !!

This site has some parts diagrams that might help:

Look at "drive case and oil lines" and "engine internals" for the XL12 saws.
