Well, as much as I hate to admit this...I was the culprit all the long.

In my original haste to dissassemble, clean, drain and ride this bike during the initial hydro-lock, I failed to notice that the tangs on the float assembly need to capture the T-head on the float-valve needle, not rest on them. So, I was assembling the needle in the closed position.

I am so embarrassed to admit this. I am only posting this so that some other hapless being may avoid the weeks of downtime I have had dealing with a very clueless mistake.

Everything happens for a reason. Thanks for all assistance and information.
