Question: Fuel Return line Routing for A/C Epuipped Cars

We have a 1960 Olds that has had A/C added to it.
According to the service manual there needs to be a return line from the Fuel filter at the Carb. There are no pictures or descriptions on how this return line is supposed to be hooked up at the Fuel filter at the Carb.

This is a customers car that we are working on. It is a very clean restoration and we want to do it right.

Any help or info would be appreciated.

Thank you, Joe Hedlund Old Coach Works. Yorkville, Illinois.
