Default Flex fuel line with one way valve

I'm hearing a flex fuel line from the fuel pump available with a one way valve.
On mine the fuel runs back to the tanks after shut down

Check valves in the pump should prevent that. or you have a leak close to the pump.

As Tinker has quite accurately stated, if your fuel pump is rebuilt correctly there is no need for flex line with a check valve.
That's simply a "band aid" approach to patching vs. a correct repair.
Do yourself a favor and send your pump to Charlie. He'll rebuild it PROPERLY and return it quickly to you.

Age has little / nothing to do with quality.
Was it rebuilt? If so, by whom? When?
Is it a reproduction?
