Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Remove the carburetor and check the impulse passage that runs from the crankcase, through the gaskets and heat insulator, to the carburetor base--these impulses cause the carburetor to pump fresh fuel into itself. You may need to clean the carburetor inside and out with spray carburetor cleaner. Check the diaphragm in the lower chamber for softness and no damage. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetors for theory and troubleshooting--this applies to other brand carburetors as well. Hope some of this helps!

Who connected these hoses? the normal routing for a machine with a primer is like this, the fuel hose from the tank with the filter on the end goes to the carb fuel inlet nozzel ( not to the primer ) nearest to the pump cover ( cover on carb held with one screw ) the pipe from the metering side of the carb connects to the shorter nozzel on the primer bulb ( suction side ), the longer nozzel on the primer ( pressure side ) connects to the pipe going back to the tank, just remember the primer pulls fuel from the carb,into the bulb, and pushes it back into the tank, it is not actually a primer it is a purge. because it is connected this way it is impossible to flood the engine no matter how many times the bulb is pressed.
Let me know if it starts and runs.
