The easiest way I have found to insert a new fuel line through the body is to cut the hose diagonally about 2-3 inches back from one end of the hose. This way you will have a tapered or pointed end to the hose, then just greese up the hose with some type of lube or soap and it should slide through a lot easier. Just remember that you actually have to go through two holes in the body to go from the pump to the tank.
Hope that helps,
