HELP Carby giving me grief....

I took the carby out, gave it a good clean and fitted new gasket's/components as per carby tune up kit. Car is a W123 M115 engined 230, with a CD 170 Stomberg carby.

All was fine, until, once reconnected.

The fuel return valve is now pouring out petrol, despite being connected to the pipe that runs to the other side of the carby, so I have petrol coming out of both the return valve and the other end of the pipe, which means petrol is going onto the manifold protection plate thing.

Does anyone know what's cousing this? How to fix it? I'm getting to the end of my tether with this car.
