The strainer is probably your problem as said above.
Do you get a whoosh when removing the fuel cap? could also be the tank vent is plugged.

When you remove the tank strainer, make sure you are as low as you can go on fuel, or you better have a lot of buckets.

seems like when I was replacing the hose, I put a vice grip on the hose under the tank, pulled off the hose where is connects to the steel fuel line. then pointed it into the bucket and removed the VG. no mess this way.

If you still have the original hose connected to the tank, they were crimped on to the fitting. Unscrew the hose from the tank, cut off the crimp, and slide on your new hose and clamp it down.

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
