Question about Garden
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.

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...
