There is no such thing as a fuel overflow line.
If the unit has a primer bulb then there will be 2 lines in the tank ( 1 is a main fuel line distinguishable by the length of line that extends into the tank with a fuel filter on the end of it, the other is a return line from the primer bulb that terminates just inside the tank usually with a male to male conector.) The main fuel line will go to the carb and another line from the carb will go to the primer bulb. If any of these lines are discolered, fragile or broken then they should be replaced. Generally the smaller diameter line is the main fuel delivery line and the larger diameter line is the primer system.

Silly question, but are you sure you are getting gas through the line? Could the line from the tank be plugged? How about the tank port?
