By "holds suction" this means that you can depress the primer bulb and it remains in the "pressed" position and/or does not reinflate (for lack of a better term)?
You need to determine if a blockage exists in either one of the fuel lines, or with the primer bulb itself.
First, drain your fuel tank. Do this into a clear mason jar or equivalent and inspect your fuel to see if it is full of debris since even very small pieces of grass, dust, dirt, etc... can cause problems. If so, then you need to flush your fuel tank and or lines.
Viewing the backside of the primer bulb, you can see several clear fuel tubing lines that lead from the primer to the carbureator and fuel tank..
Next, carefully remove these using a pair of needle nosed pliers (or by hand is at all possible) being very careful not to crush or tear the tubing.
With the clear tubing removed, if the primer bulb will press in and immediately reinflates back to it's relaxed position, then one or more of your lines are clogged by a small piece of debris. If the primer still does not relax, then it is blocked by a small piece of debris or needs to be replaced (pick one up at Lowes, etc...).
If you determine that your lines may be clogged, then I have had success clearing them with a can of WD-40 by sticking the red nozzle into the clear tubing (attempt to make a seal) and by pressing for a half-second or so. If you get flow, then let it rip for a second, then proceed to rinse your fuel tank again just for good measure (basically until you get nothing but clean gas...no debris).
Put it all back together and let it rip!

Double check that the fuel lines are routed properly. Another place to look for a potential problem is where the fuel line comes out of the tank. Make sure the hose is not pinched. The typical fuel line routing is the first line (the one with the fuel filter in the end of it) comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the carburator. The second line comes out of the tank and goes to the bottom fitting on the primer bulb and the third line goes from top fitting on primer bulb to top fitting on carburator. Hope this helped and best wishes.

From the fuel tank to the carb, from the carb to the primer, from the primer back to the fuel tank. The bulb sucks fuel through the carb excess fuel is returned to the tank. HTH

SOURCE: blower/vac fuel lines
The longest, and sometimes smaller in diameter of the two fuel lines, goes from
the carburetor to the bottom of the tank. Leave enough slack in this
line so that the filter that attaches to the end will rest comfortably at the bottom of the tank.
The other fuel line goes from the primer bulb to just inside the tank, (about an inch). make sure that you get the right size fuel lines. The plastic coupling goes on the end of this line, inside the tank. This keeps the line from pulling out of the tank.
(HINT): When feeding the lines through the tank holes, cut the lines at an angle. They will feed much easier into the holes. You can than cut them off square, once you know that you have enough to work with.
If you need further assistance, just let me know.

The smaller diameter line (fuel supply) goes from the fuel tank (w/filter) to the carb body. Another larger line (purge line) goes from carb body to the right nipple on the primer bulb. Another large line (return line) goes from the left nipple of the primer bulb into the fuel tank. co0mpleting the purge circuit. This info pertains to my 2006 Craftsman 32cc with Zama carb.
