fuel help!

checked the fuel pressure at it was about 35 at the bowl so i took off the tube where it fills with the spring at the top of the fuel bowl to check the spring and its all good so i screwed it back together and now no fuel is flowing through that port. the bottom of the tank is filling out of the lower port.. whats making one fill and the other not?

The port at the top with the spring is the return to the tank.

Make sure you have a clean filter in there. And I assume you cleaned any junk out of the regulator when I was apart. But it could be a few things the pump could be weak, the spring in the regulator could be worn, or the screens in the tank could be clogged.
