Ryobi Grass Scorpion Petrol lines from tank to primer to carby where to where

The petrol lines on my Grass Scorpion have aged (12 years) and broken. I need to know the circuitry from Fuel Tank to Primer to Carby. TWO lines go from Fuel Tank, NO.1 from Internal Fuel Filter in Tank to ??? and No.2 from Fuel Tank to ???
These lines obviously go to the Primer Pump and the Carby. But which goes to which???"
The replacement of all these fuel lines is quite simple but I cannot find anywhere a Fuel Flow Circuit Diagram.
The Ryobi Grass Scorp[ion has worked perfectly for 12 years and I am loathe to put it to rest. It has become a member of the family

    You have just saved me over A$100. My wife said "After 12 years good service, just buy a new one".
    The Ryobi is just as good a workmate as our two border collies are.I just couldn't take it to the tip.
    Two years ago I had two stents put into my heart so I know how the old Ryobi feels.
    Thanks for your help.

Thanks to

The line off the top of the primer bulb goes to the top of the carburetor.
The line on the bottom of the primer bulb goes to the fitting on the center of the fuel tank and the line off the side of the fuel tank goes to the bottom of the carburetor.

I have a troybuilt weed eater. I just put a new carbeutor on and its not running right. It has compression but will not start?

check the position of the fuel lines to the primer or if part of the carby from the tank to the carby
the way it works is that the primer bulb sucks fuel through the carby to prime it so the tank line goes to the carby and the line from the primer back to the tank
could be flooded or the metering screws have to be adjusted

pull the carby and clean out all of the jets
the problem most likely is not bad fuel but failing rubber components that is leaving bits of rubber in the carby and pump valves
the rubber in the hoses, primer bulb, pump diaphragm breaks down internally and lodges small particles in the filter and carby and with the age of the motor ( 12 years) now would be a good time to replace all of the rubber
unless you are familiar with the motor and carby I suggest from a safety point of view that you have the carby and work done at a service center for the make of outboard
