Default D2 Tank emptying into VO Tank

I need to disable the system long enough to get it back into the garage, and what could be causing this?
Searching threads now.....

Likely a bad check valve or a bad purge valve.

Pull the 5/16 return line and the 3/8 VO fuel line at the tank or at the rear of the V3 then start you diesel pump.

If the 5/16 return line is leaking diesel you have a bad purge valve.

If the 3/8 VO line is leaking you have a bad check valve.

I should have added clamp or plug the line that's leaking.

If you can find a 3/8 barbed ball valve cut your VO feed line in the engine bay and install it there or in front of the V3 it would be handy for problems like this.

Say this too late. Vise grips works in a pinch.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the help, Truck is in garage, and I've cleaned the Check Valve, not bad looking, no poly, but a real sluggish shuttle, so its clean and back in.
Purge Valve had one chunk of poly that was encasing a small bit of wire grid.
Not sure if from Spin on filter or pre filter.
This system is so reliable, I've done nothing to it, save for five filters over five years?
But I did neglect Preventative Maintenance, which bit me.
Meanwhile, I've moved houses and my notes are still packed away.
Where can I find the BFT V3 Instruction Manual? (Installation, Operation Manual)
I cannot find it on the forums here?
And alot of the good images that users posted are locked up now.
Can anyone provide the Port Breakdown of the Manifold?
TIA

I have the install pdf, but I can't figure out how to send it as a post.

PM your email and I'll send it to you.
