With the bowl drain open , there's no build up of fuel to close the valve . Fuel will simply keep flowing as long as the petcock allows .

Better polish the float valve seat with q tips and Brasso or the like . It should be shiny clean with no deformations . Same goes for the float valve needle , if it's metal . If rubber tipped , it should be somewhat supple and conical with no deformation .
