when you remove the check valve it no longer has anything to put the fuel back into the canister.. this whole check valve item is kinda like a return sytem just not as good. by drilling the holes it allows for fuel to get into the canister and I belive that is where it gets some of its fuel from. I drilled these holes on the front side of the canister about 1-1.5 in from the bottom side by side as many as i could fit (on the front half of the canister)

I thought the check valve was to keep the fuel pressure up (keep it from bleeding down) when the engine was shut off, that way it wouldnt have to prime every time you started the car.

and what was that black line that you plugged with a bolt? the righting on that thing is SMALL
