40 hp mercury 2 stroke 2000

After I connect fuel line and prime system, if I leave the fuel line connected, the motor will flood out. I have removed the carb and checked needle and seat, all clean and seem to be working perfectly. The only way to keep the motor running is to only leave fuel line on long enough to fill the bowl of carb. it appears to be related to the fuel line/tank. Any thoughts ?
