The lines that go to the regulator are the return lines. The return line will see verying fuel pressure depending on throttle position/fuel consumption.

i got 2 lines comings from the rear one goes into a T and splits into 2 lines to the rear and then the other comes into the bottom of the regulator and splits into 2 lines out of it and goes to the front of the heads...

I have not seen Carson's kit but:Everything before the reg which includes the lines going into and out of the heads will see the same fuel pressure as the regulator is set to. The actual return to tank line would be from the regulator to the tank. It would see varying pressure depending on fuel usage/ pump flow rate and hose size.

usually it is set up by feeding the front of the heads, comes out of the back of the heads to the reg and out the return line to the tank.
