Yes the petcock should only flow when vacuum is applied.... unless you have it in the 'PRI' position. Then it will flow no matter what. That position is only used to prime the float chambers. But when 'ON' or 'RES' no fuel should flow at all until engine runs. Did a new diaphragm come with the rebuild kit? If gas flows in those other positions I wonder if the diaphragm spring is seated correctly.
