I am new here,,, and this is exactly the question, I have,,,,, or,,,, I need this same help even.
 I have a manual, and I have looked at the on-line manual, and nothing I've looked at shows a clear diagram for "all" of the fuel lines in the system. I just bought my first Odyssey a few days ago, and the guy I bought it from had changed the fuel filter and put new lines on, but one of the lines is not connected, and I'm not sure if he might have forgot to put a hose on??? Here's what happens when I try to start it:
 
  I am getting fuel to the filter,  and to the pump, but there is not a drop going past the pump. It fires right up when I take off the air filter and prime the carb, but no fuel pumps past the fuel pump, so as soon as the priming fuel is used up it shuts down. Someone has to have some good clear photos of the fuel line system and where everything goes????? Please help,,,, I need to ride!!!!!!!!!!

I am new here also but when i took mine apart there was a line going to a fitting on the engine crankcase i believe that pulses the pump and makes fuel flow

I seen that fitting, and wondered if that is where this hose that is dangling off the bottom of the fuel pump was supposed to go???? I didn't hook it up there, with fear of something bad happening. If that is what I need to hook up, that might be all I need. I would still like to see a picture of someones fuel lines that are all set up properly. are there any that are just breathers, not hooked to anything?

If you need any more information on the FL250, please feel free to view all of the pics on the site I put up after my complete restoration. I, like you, didn't know squat about the FL250, but got through the restoration with help from everyone here at POPS and at KiowA's site. Without everyone's help, I would have been in deep doo-doo! Here's the link to my site and I'm sorry I couldn't respond earlier in order to help you out!

http://www.atlanticpaints.com/Odyssey

When you get there, click on the "Rebuilding" link and scroll down to the pics of the fuel system. All of your questions should be answered there.

Best of luck!
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left!  :shock:
