Clean or replace fuel filter.
Filter is located in the gas tank, on the end of a small rubber fuel line.
Use a large wire, with a hook(1/8 in. radius inside)on the end, to pull the filter far enough out of the
tank to remove the filter assembly.
May be difficult to re-install filter assembly because fuel line is short (it will stretch 10 to 20 % of it's

Easy way to install fuel line and primer bulb return line into gas tank

Chainsaw fuel lines enter the gas tank from holes in top of tank. They are sized for a tight fit to prevent leakage. Make it easy on yourself when pushing the line through the tank by cutting a long lengthwise taper cut with razor knife 3 inches or longer to easily feed through that tight hole. Once started you will then have to grab it through the gas cap hole with needle nose pliers, then cut the tapered end flush and add fuel filter. Readjust inside length by pulling from above, then cut to length to upper carb fitting. If connecting to primer bulb a filter is not required and make sure the line goes to fitting on primer bulb marked tank.

After running for a bit it wont start, the primer is < a 1/4 full just sucking air.

this sort of sounds too me as A fuel line routing problem / as sometimes happens when replacing a old fuel line one doesn't get it back right as it was before and maybe runs line instead by a part that gets hotter than others , this causes fuel to boil in a hot saw and create a air pocket , this makes it near impossible to get liquid fuel to pass by it and blocks up the works , other thing it could be is that primer bulb has a tiny crack inside and allows air to enter and not fuel (heavier) ive seen that happen a few times as well

Poulan prolink pp335 will start runs for approx 1 min then dies , noticed primer bulb retracts slow after being pushed in

This is classic fuel blockage, start by changing the fuel filter in the fuel tank, if no better check fuel hose has not collapsed or become trapped, if no better remove the carb, under the pump cover ( alluminium cover held with a single screw ) under the diaphram is an internal filter, clean or replace.

My Toro 20016 will start but will only run for a minute. If I hold the primer button down all the way it will continue to run but will die if I release. I have cleaned the float and there are no leaks in...

You will need to clean out the jet on the bottom of the carburetor. The fuel is not being sucked in to engine. Check the needle and seat to make sure fuel is flowing in to the carburetor.
