the car 82 ea81 carter-weber........ Im installing a weber ea82 intake every thing ok so far ..

now hooking up the fuel lines the filter has 3 lines

fuel in from tank (size 5/16)........fuel out to carb (5/16) .......3rd line looks like a fuel return (1/8)

do I need that 3rd line, or just plug it..............

looks like the the tank vent line runs into the charcoal canister.....T or F

Remove the stock filter and install a plain one inlet/one outlet fuel filter. You don't want or need that vapor seperator. In fact you don't need a filter in the engine bay at all as there is one back by the pump. The "filter" in then engine bay is really a vapor seperator not primarily a filter.

Remove the canister and just leave the tank vent open.
