carb question

I swapped engines (06 prowler) over the weekend & don't remember where the vacuum line from the carb goes. Can someone help me figure out where it is suppose to go?

The vacuum line goes from the nipple on the rubber boot (boot between carb and head) over to the top fitting on the fuel pump (located next to passenger seat).

Yes, I have the vacuum line from fuel pump to the rubber boot nipple, there is another vacuum hose that is coming directly out of the carb, maybe it is just a vent? I just don't remember unhooking it during swap.
By the way Thanks for the response & help. I don't post very often but do check out the site & read most daily.

The one coming from the driver's side top is just a vent. Doesn't connect to anything (hose just hangs down the back of the engine). So there is the fuel input, top vent, and the bottom overflow line.

Thanks,
I thought it might be a vent.

Garage
Isn't that the vent hose someone suggested you plug to keep fuel from evaporating and make them start easier after sitting for a while? I'm sure I read that somewhere time to start searching again.

I've already planned on plugging that vent line. First I was going to move my one way flow valve to between tank and pump, and then try plugging that vent.
