My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
I got curious and took apart the fuel reservoir. It was indeed a broken check valve. No filter, but it was the kind you can unscrew and it had an o-ring in it.

I am going to permanently remove the check valve in the reservoir (doesn't appear to be a replaceable part), put an inline check valve just before the reservoir, and put it back together that way. System will still act the same, the reservoir will be there for whatever reason if it is necessary, and since all my other parts work it will be a cheap fix.
Great idea.
