Sounds like you have the fuel lines switched around. The fuel line closest to the primer bulb will be the shortest line. It only goes 1" or so into the tank. The other line will be the longest line, and sometimes the smallest in diameter of the two depending on the size of your trimmer, and must rest comfortably on the bottom of the tank.

Take the old piece of fuel line and have the vendor match the size. Buy 1 ft. so that you have a little extra to work with. Cut fuel line at an angle. This will allow for easier insertion into the hole in the gas tank. Feed the line through until you can pull it out of the opening where the gas cap is. Cut the line off square. Attach the fuel filter. Pull the line back through until it rests comfortably on the bottom of the tank. Assemble the trimmer. You will then get a more accurate measurement to the carburetor.

It's possibly the filter, can't help there. I would check for a split line or loose connection between the tank and bulb and even splits in the bulb itself.

You can go to a small engine repair shop, parts shop or look on eBay and they should have the fuel lines you need. Not very expensive, about $1.00/foot for new Tygon lines. You are way overdue for replacing yours. The ethanol in the gas does a job on them.
