Question about Garden
Bought a used Toro 824 Snow blower. Had bad fuel in it, cleaned all fuel out via tank drain and the bowl. Added new fuel. Took out spark plug and put fuel in the cylinder directly. Replaced spark plug. Fired engine. Started, then cut out. Repeated the above steps, started, then cut out after about 10 seconds. Will no longer stay on, thinking I pulled some debris into the fuel line and blocked it. Isolated that there is a blockage in the fuel line BEFORE the primer and AFTER the fuel shut off valve (but primer and shut off value are not blocked). Going to be taking it apart anticipating that the blockage in simply in the fuel line, but wondering if there is anything else inline before the primer, such as a fuel filter, that might be clogged? Thanks.

The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.
Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.

Toro Timecutter Z4200 mounts gas tank under
seat and below carburetor. After first started, Z4200 will start
OK again during mowing this period. But after some time passes
(next mowing), gas evaporates from carburetor. Can run down
battery using battery/starter getting gas backup through carburetor to
start engine. This is poor Toro design, but good for service
charges when replacing good components while trying to fix this problem.
Better solution is to add an outboard motor one-way squeeze bulb (approx. $15) between the fuel filter and the carburetor. Using the squeeze bulb for first start will prime the motor so that it will start without having to crank so long (which Toro says will burn up the starter). Toro saves $15/mower as well as selling new Z4200 starters.

SOURCE: PRIMER BULB WONT PRIME
I would recheck the carburetor to make sure you put the diaphragms next to the carburetor and not the gaskets.
Please if it is not priming you may have the fuel lines hooked up wrong. Also check the fuel cap to make sure the vent assembly is there. If the tank is not venting, the tank will get a vacuum in it not allowing fuel to flow.
