Default fuel tank build questions

I am building my first fuel tank and was wondering if it needs to be vented into the tank or out of the tank. Motor is carbureted. It will not have a vented cap.

Usually you'd mimic whatever set up the factory fuel system your using had. If it had a vented cap or a hose running up to the cap area to vent, then you'd make something similar. I pretty sure every type of system has some sort of vent or the pump will not be able to work.

I'm not sure what you mean by vented in or out, but a roll over valve with a filter routed up high should vent your tank well.
