Can't get fuel in it...

Some thing has all of a sudden gone wrong and I am not sure where to begin on fixing it. When I put my truck back together I did the harpoon mod and could fill up real quick. After a while I noticed it taking a little longer because you had to hold the pump handle just right to get it to pump with out clicking off. Today it took me over 30 minutes to fuel up my tank. I could barely let the fuel run with out it clicking off. I just had to keep clicking and clicking It acts to me like its not venting and causing an air bubble or some thing to push the fuell back up. You can watch it run down slow but I don't really hear any gurgling or any thing? Any one have any ideas on what I should check before I just start pulling stuff apart? Thanks

Takes 5 minutes to pull the supply line. Sure sounds like a vent problem to me.

I would listen to NCHornet and pull the filler tube off and make sure you didn't leave a rag or something in your vent tube. And yes the the vent tube runs next to the filler tube.
