Scott,

Most leak problems are caused by a wrong orientation of the check valve and fuel pipe. The hinges of the valve must be at the top and the fuel pipe bend must go up to the top skin before going down.

Additionally, McFarlane has an improved pipe:

Have a leaking fuel vent that really started pouring fuel after cleaning out debris from line. Blew into vent line to check both tanks venting and after doing this the gas really poured from vent till enough was gone to get below the check valve. Thoughts on fixing the issue of fuel making a mad dash out of the vent line?
