VN750 Petcock

I'm having the same problem. Rebuilt the petcock as new one is $100, fuel still come out of the petcock without vacuum applied. There is a small (tiny) channel leading from inside the plastic separator to the outside of the unit. Can anyone give me the exact orientation of this small channel relative to the overall petcock?

Looking at mine installed on the bike, it looks like the channel must be on top, that's the only side I couldn't see.

edit: Parts diagram in the following thread also shows it facing up: https://www.vn750.com/forum/22-carbs-...ve-switch.html

Ouch! $5-10 generic petcock works just fine and is a direct fit.
