Take the fill cap off and see if the fuel will flow than. If does than tank is not vented. Don't know how it is vented.

Did you remove your fuel filter in the process?
If it's an in-line filter, is it possible that you put it backwards?

I believe that model may have a vacuum fuel valve. Check and see if there are two nipples on the petcock. One would be for fuel and the second for a vacuum line. The vacuum pulls open a diaphragm in the petcock to allow fuel to flow.
