26/27 cowl tank bowl. I have the steel fuel line, the whole sediment bowl assembly, and 2 packing nuts with felt. However, it looks like where the steel fuel line goes in there's supposed to be a threaded nut that holds the line in there. I don't have it, what does it look like?

Feed pipe pack nut #2910 is listed for all years 09-26. Two per car, one at each end of the fuel line. At the carb it screws onto the #6154 elbow. The one at the other end attaches to the sediment bulb outlet. You can use the felt or a short piece of neoprene hose. I don't know how 1927 is different.

It looks like an elbow of some sort goes into the sediment bowl as well. I have the 2 pack nuts, and the elbow inlet for the carburetor. The fuel line is loose in the bowl and wiggles around. Noticed the outlet for the bowl has threading in it. Is there an elbow for the outlet?

There is an elbow that goes into the sediment bulb as well. The elbow should point straight down when installed. I believe it is the same elbow that goes to the carburetor. See http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/599638/658484.html?1468234383

^yep, that's it! Exactly what I was looking for. The manual image is a little different than my bowl though. On mine the outlet is on the engine side of the bowl, not the front.

I'm guessing any elbow will probably work so long as it's the right thread and hole size. I'll see if I have something laying around.
