I woke up this morning and with a clear head and tried again. I used a light coat of grease to hold the O ring in place. I was ab,e to use a screw driver through the outlet tube to re position the valve. When I heard an audible click I figured it was back in place. It also stays in place when i turn it upside down. The only confusing part is a small green o ring that was laying in the bowl when i cracked it open. No idea what it went to or how it got there. I also used a light coat of grease on the threads so it would go back together easier. I was able to re install it on the truck with no problems.
The bad news. Now the truck will not start. It will fire on starting fliud so I know it has spark and air. It is obviously a fuel issue. The only variable that is different is that little valve in the housing. There are no leaks so i am assuming the O ring is in place. However, I do nto know if I got that valave working or what the O ring did.
