Old Craftsman Hedge Trimmer

Attempting to revive an old trimmer that was given to me. It ran but the fuel lines have all deteriorated. Inside the tank there was a pieces of small dia hose and the filter, appears the large dia is missing. Detail on replacement parts web site does not have the detail to reconstruct.

Two lines from tank to carb, inside the tank there is a coupling on the large dia hose. Is my schematic correct for placement of filter on the large hose which goes to primer bulb.

Odd, original post is not showing all the pictures! Do I need a comma or something between them?

The filter goes on the small line and it needs to hang down far enough to lay on the bottom of the tank. The small line then connects to the port on the carburetor that sucks in when you release the primer bulb. Then the big line goes from the port on the carb that blows out when you press the primer straight to the tank. That little barb is on it to keep it from pulling out because it's just a return line, it doesn't go far into the tank.
