If hadn't changed the fuel lines prior to this problem it is probably the internal filter screen in the carburetor plugged or the tank's fuel filter.
If you had replaced the fuel lines then it is probably the plumbing of the fuel lines. The primer is suppose to suck through the carburetor and return the excess fuel back to the fuel tank. It fuel system plumbed backwards, which can be done several ways, the carburetor internal check valve will prevent proper operation of both itself and the primer.

SOURCE: how do I replace the primer bulb on a Homelite

Most of them snap in, meaning there are two small blades that are cast into the plastic for the primer bulb housing. These tabs fit into a recess and lock when pushed in from the outside. You will need the entire replacement as you cannot just replace the bulb like is possible on a Zama or Walbro carb. Whatever you do, make sure you mark the routing of the hoses. Its always fun to get them hoses mixed up and then wonder how theyre supposed to route...

Is the primer bulb replacable on 200 classic chainsaw.or do I have to buy a new gas cap.


Hi Shirley:
My apologies if I'm incorrect, but I've never seen a chainsaw that had the primer bulb connected to the gas cap.
So,,,,,
I'm hoping you're asking two questions at the same time.
1) Primer bulbs are replaceable but it's extremely rare that it is necessary
2) Gas caps are replaceable but only needs to be done if they are broken.
If you reply as a comment on this post I'll be able to respond to you.
Cheers.

I have a handheld blower/vac: The primer bulb is new and will not pump fuel,not even fill the bulb. I checked the fuel lines to make sure they were correct.(homelite)


I was working on a neighbor's homelite chainsaw and I replaced the primer bulb, it was not intuitive, and I hooked up the lines backwards. Also if you are replacing the primer bulb, maybe you have old fuel lines that are deteriorating and need replaced. Did you check the in tank fuel filter? If it looks dark, it may be time to change it.

I hope this helps get you going again.

My chainsaw (Homelite UT10514) will not prime fuel. I have changed the primer bulb and checked the fuel lines for damage, they seem to be in good shape.


You need to make sure the lines are connected properly to the bulb. Also, if the carburetor diaphragms are not working properly the carburetor will not prime.

Walbro WT891 carb on a Craftsman chainsaw. Carb is brand new, all fuel lines and fule filter replaced. I prime the carb with the little plunger, chainsaw starts up and runs out of fuel within 30 seconds....


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.

How to replace the fuel primer bulb and fuel lines in McCulloch 3516 chainsaw? the fuel primer bulb broke and the plastic lines have crumbled. i need to know how to run the lines from the fuel tank to...


I just did a primer bulb not too long ago, but I don't remember what equipment it was on. They are generally easy to replace. First, remove anything that is retaining the bulb assembly, such as cover plate. On my Homelite chainsaw, I simply pried it out with a small screwdriver.
The replacement part itself has two barbed stubs that the two fuel line hoses push onto.
Make sure that you keep the fuel line tubes above the fuel level at all times to prevent leakage.
