Thank you Charles! and I was right. Apparently, I may have lost my hose cap,
and that hose got moved to the vent tube by my well meaning but forgetful
helper. and I quote:
*16) Cut the red hose (#9, return hose, middle hose coming from gas tank)*
* and plug.*
* YOU MUST PLUG THIS HOSE!!*
* This hose will drain fuel when the tank is full.*
* *That would explain it. All better now, thanks guys!
