Question about Garden
There seems to be a problem with the flow of fuel to my RCT2800, the primer bulb doesn't fill with fuel. I have cleaned the pipes and when not connected to the fuel does flow from the tank but the bulb isn,t pushing fuel through to the carbureter
Could be a few things
air leak in your fuel tank
air leak in your pipe
even your zama carburetor
all can be obtained on ebay

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.

The line off the top of the primer bulb goes to the top of the carburetor.
The line on the bottom of the primer bulb goes to the fitting on the center of the fuel tank and the line off the side of the fuel tank goes to the bottom of the carburetor.

SOURCE: primer bulb won't prime
it sounds like the filter on the fule line is cloged try to remove the filter and then try to prime the trimmer. it it does you need to replace the filter. just about any filter that will fit will do.

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.

SOURCE: Primer bulb won't re-fill.
Not sure about your particular set-up, but there is usually two fuel lines running from the fuel tank. One goes to the carb and the other goes on a fitting on back of the primer bulb. The primer bulb will have a second fitting with a line going to carb. Sounds like either a clogged or leaking fuel line to me. Hope this helps and good luck.
