Floyd you may bee pressing the primer button to fast. If the tank is not full to start with the air may be getting in that way.

Fuel wont go threw the prime buble

check for a break or crack in the fuel lines. especially where the line goes through the tank. I am guessing you are sucking air versus pulling fuel. the primer bulb itself may also be cracked

15084 homelite carborator adjustments.

Homelite is a piece, Ive bought them cause they were cheap and that they are. I have also repaired them. Usually its not carb needing adjusting its a crack in the prime buble, or the cheap gas lines that go to carb from fuel tank.The carb can also get very nasty in the float. Best thing to do is take carb off and clean it with carb cleaner. that may work, but the fuel lines will probably fall apart in process cause theyre cheap. home depot has the prime bubles and fuel lines all for about 15 dollars and alittle elbo grease(carb is very easy to take off ,just start unbolting it and you will see how easy as you go along) besides if you screw up throw away and buy another or a better brand

It was running after a carb re-build. now my bulb isn't pulling gas when i pump it

The bulb and/or fuel lines could have a small hole in them, losing vacuum, introducing air into the fuel system and causing problem. First off, check inside the fuel tank and make sure the fuel filter is attatched to fuel line. This is a common place for the line to break and if it does, it floats, introducing LOTS of air and a malfunctioning purge/primer bulb. When you depress the bulb, the vacuum created actually allows gas to Flow to the carburetor as it is pushing any air/old gas back to the fuel tank. So, in summary. Carefully check the condition of ALL of the fuel lines ,fuel filter and the bulb itself. If they are dry, non-flexible, or cracked, they need to be replaced.

Water leaking from heater core area, in engine compartment, near blower motor and ac components, what causes the leak?

ussually the problems is coused by too much pressure in the system or worn heather core hose or by a faulty water pump or blown head gasket check system for air buble while engine running if no air bubles change termostat and water pump and the problems should be gone.

My 2000xk8 Jag air conditon is blowing hot air . I had it

Most probably you have a leak some where.
What you can do is have it checked proffessionally , or if you like to do it your self :
Pressure fill the AC with AIR and you can use any air pump that will fit the lines. After filling the air (up to 300, not more han that) you can get some water with soap , and put soap over the AC lines and seals and corners in the engine compartment. if any leak you will see soap bubles. If nothing shows there then you have a problem with the cooling tank , radiator inside the dash and you need to check that.

Bubles in the claer line.

The clear line will be your fuel line.The pump would normally keep pressure on your injectors and consequently has no air. There is a non return(check) valve in the pump to keep fuel at you injectors. Sounds like this has failed. New or 2nd hand fuel pump required

Just changed fuel line and truck wont start now

there is air in the lines you will need to bleed them out first crack (take loose) the line comming into the injection pump and crank the motor over for a bit this will cause the lift pump to force the air out of that line tighten up when no bubles come out then repeat on injector lines to purge air out of the injection pump this should solve your problems
