Question about Garden
Hi Esh Weizman
Sounds like you have the fuel lines reversed going to and from the primer bulb.
I will put a picture up for you to see the routing of the fuel lines
Please take time to rate me

Unless you had the fuel lines off or replaced them, leave them where they are. The problem most likely is in your carb. The diaphragms are possibly brittle or the needle is stuck from varnish from old gas. The easiest solution is to replace the carb.

Line from tank with the filter on it is the supply line and goes to the
carb inlet fitting. This is typically on the "bottom" of the carb (with
the tank being up) and will usually have a fitting with barbs or a
bulge on it to ensure a tight fit. The other fitting on the carb is the
return line and is usually a straight tube fitting with no barbs. That
line goes the suction side of the primer bulb. The third line goes from
the outlet of the primer bulb to the return barb fitting in the bottom
of the tank. Fittings have to be removed from tank to properly install
the new hoses on them. Remove retainer ring on outide of tank and push
fittings into tank, then shake out of the fill opening. More details on
replacing hoses are listed in another post about Repairing Ryobi
Have you checked the spark plug?

Yes, you are right. The larger line goes to the primer bulb and only goes into the tank about an inch. The coupling just keeps the line from pulling out of the tank. The smaller line goes to the carb. This line must rest comfortably on the bottom of the tank with the filter attached to the end.

There may be a malfunction in the check valves in the primer base assembly. Before attempting to get a new assembly, take the retaining screws at the bulb off, remove the bulb and spray the assembly liberally with WD-40 or an equivalent light lubricant. Sometimes this will free the check valves as they only let fuel flow one way and there are 2 of them in the primer base.
Do not use strong solvents, do not ever soak, and never use high PSI compressed air on these carbs. Sometimes, when the check valves in the primer base go bad, the carb floods and the reason is unclear. Zama doesn't list this as a reason for their carbs flooding, but they can. You may wish to view a parts breakdown list for your specific carb. You will need to know the type (stamped in side of carb body) and the model (stenciled in side of carb body). It will be something like a C1U type and a W-18A mode...thus its a C1U-W18A Zama carb. Here is a link to get you started.
Yours will be listed under Poulan/Weedeater
