Flip the lines once and see if that fixes the problem.

otherwise, was the fuel flowing before the fuel line change?

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.

25cc featherlite weedeater not getting fuel into bulb when you pump it, nor does it seem to be getting any fuel at all. pour a little gas in carb and it will start and run til gas is gone. What's up with...

Check the condition of the fuel filter/fuel line inside the fuel tank. It could be clogged. The line that feeds the carburetor is connected to a fuel filter inside the fuel tank. Also, the carburetor could be clogged with debris, especially if the fuel line has come off of the filter inside the tank. They get brittle and break, sometimes causing your problem. There is a fine mesh screen inside the fuel pump side of the carburetor (the side without the vent hole) that sometimes needs to be cleaned off to allow proper fuel flow thru it. Remove the carb and remove the fuel pump cover and check the condition of the filter screen after checking condition of fuel lines and fuel tank filter.
The bulb will sometimes not "pull" and "push" the fuel right if the check valves inside the carburetor are malfunctioning, stuck or dirty. Start at the fuel tank and work your way to the carburetor. The fuel lines should be soft and pliable. Replace them if not. You should be able to blow air easily thru the fuel line that goes from the carburetor directly to the fuel tank. Check for all the above and post back if needed.

I need a fuel line schematic for a WeedEater brand Featherlite Plus weedeater

Presuming the primer bulb is on top of the carb....Fuel filter line out of gas tank goes to the lower part if carburetor body. The other line (normally larger in size) coming out of the fuel tank goes to the primer bulb outlet on the top of carb.
If the primer/purge bulb is not on the carb, things are a little different. The fuel filter line out of the tank still goes directly to the carb, as the bulb will pull old fuel/air out of the carb allowing fresh fuel to flow in and pushes old fuel/air back to the fuel tank.
Fresh fuel in, old fuel out of the can hook up a piece of fuel line to the bulb and tell which one is pulling and which one is pushing..or depress it with your fingers on it...either way you can tell.

Gas problem

Check gas cap to make sure breather holes aren't plugged. Check screen inside tank where shut-off valve is to make sure it isn't clogged.

I have a featherlite that will not run

Does it have a primer bulb? If so, check it for cracks, also check the fuel lines and the uptake filter in the fuel tank which may be clogged, check all the seals of the carb inder a magnifier to check for dirt or cracks...this is going to sound stupid but are you sure you put the carb back together correctly?

The filter in the gas tank came off.

The filter should only fit in the end of one of the lines (probably the larger diameter one) The smaller line usually goes from the tank to the primer bulb and the larger one goes to the carburator. The filter just sticks in the end of the fuel line.
