The bulb pulls fuel from the carb, so if there is a blockage in the fuel system up to the carb, or the carb itself the bulb will not fill and will be slow to return, as you have replaced the filter and line, the blockage must be in the carb, remove the screws securing the carb and remove it, there are two sections to the carb, the pump side, and the metering side, the pump side will normally be an alluminium cover held with a single screw, under here you will find a gasket a pump diaphram and a fuel inlet filter in that order, clean or replace the filter, if the diaphram is stiff replace it, now turn the carb over to the metering side, if the primer is on the bottom of the carb, remove the two screws securing its holding plate , remove the two other screws holding the cover on, if the primer is remote, just remove the four screws from the cover, under here you will find the metering diaphram, and gasket in that order, in the base of the carb is a sprung loaded metering lever, make sure this operates freely, up and down, and lifts the needle underneath, check the diaphram is soft and supple, if it is stiff replace it. If the primer is remote, make sure you have conected the pipes corectly, the longe pipe on the back of the primer ( pressure side ) is the return to the tank, not to the carb, the short pipe is the suction side and goes to the carb.
