I probably can explain this to where you won't need a video.
Remove the old lines noted which is the pickup, which is the return, and the routing. If unfamiliar with line replacement I recommend removing and replacing one line at a time; Also taking pictures if needed helps.
Get a length of tag wire. ( Long enough to pass through the line holes and out the filler opening).
Insert the tag wire through one of the fuel lone holes and out the filler opening.
Cut a taper on the replacement line and insert the tag wire through the tapered section and twist to tie it on the fuel line.
Image of wire/line attachment below.
Now gently pull the new into the tank and out fuel line hole.
The procedure is the same for the other line.
Note: For fuel pickup attach your fuel filter. On return line some have a fitting on the end to prevent it pull out so install the fitting if one is used. Also cut line the line to length adding a little extra for the taper section as needs removing so the line line can be attached.
check your fuel lines ensure you have them on correctly also check spark plug clean if necessary also when you change out fuel lines and carb it may take quite a few pulls to crank cause the little fuel system has to get primed up!
A bad duckbill vent (the little green thing) inside the fuel cap will cause a vacuum to be created if it is NOT venting to the atmosphere. Odd that all new ones you have used are bad. Maybe try using your old, original fuel cap and the carburetor needs adjusting or at the least; a gaket and diaphragm kit installed. Carb screws are NOT user friendly, thanks to EPA and CARB emissions regulations. You can get onto the heads of them to turn them by tapping a 22 gauge automotive-type plastic wire connector onto the head, and that will give you enough grip to turn them. I would TRY adjusting the carb before getting a kit, but after 2 years or so, a G & D kit is usually needed due to the internals of the carb drying out. If you adjust the carb, this is how the manufacturer says to:
