    Fuel problem in1997 gti

    Newbe here. I just replaced all the tempo lines and cleaned out carb filters, replaced both diaphrams and put all back together. Also took out fuel baffle and cleaned filter.
    Problem is when i took it out the thing only runs when the fuel knob is on reserve, runs great, but turn it to on and it runs out of gas. I wonder if i put the float in backwards or if it matters. I didn't pay attention when it fell out of the baffle. i was very careful replacing the lines only doing one at a time. Any ideas, thanks.

    Did you take the fuel selector off and clean it? Lots of junk gets collected inside it and will cause your issue.

    are you talking about the on/off/reserve valve? No i didn't as a matter of fact.
