Bowen WH, flame at orifice

Hello All,

Working on a Bowen G6A-3 water heater.
I have replaced the gas valve and the burner tube.
My problem is that i seem to be getting a small reverse flame when the burner lights. A flame can be seen at the orifice at the gas valve. this can't be good. I thought that the flame should only be present at the end of the burner tube by the plot.

Thank you.
