Default Proper Vent/Fuel/Vacuum line placement on Carbs

Can anyone please take a good Picture of what line goes where. I've checked the manuel and it doesn't specifically say where to hook them up. I disassembled and reassembled the carbs, but they just didn't look right and I don't want to go through the expense of hooking it up wrong. I know there are 2 connection spots on the upper rail and 2 on the lower. Please help!!

The two upper are the vents they loop up and over the
airbox.. the two lowers are the fuel feed..

Thanks, one more question...If you were sitting on the bike, which side would be the main fuel line hook-up and I'm guessing the other side would be for the reserve hook- up.

Both are the same.
The res/ main is in the tank.
Fuel pours out both fittings at any position
Mine is (sitting on the bike)
Right hand hose to far fitting (pointed away)
Left hose to near fitting (pointing to you)

Just an FYI , whenever someone says "feft" or "right" , it's generally understood that that's as you sit on the thing . And I KNOW Jim posted a pic somewhere showing the routing of the hoses , but I'm too lazy to go find it myself (hint : search) .
