If the engine dies when you try to speed it up chances are your muffler is the problem. Any equipment that uses a gas/oil will eventually have a stopped up muffler due to carbon buildup. This restricts the air flow and the engine won't run or open up. First take the muffler off and see if you can start and adjust the carb with it off. Turn both the air and the gas adjustment screws all the way in, then back them both out one and a quarter turns. Start from there.
Unstop the muffler by throwing it in an open fire for 10 to 15 mins or using a torch to burn the carbon out. There is a screen in the muffler that I would toss out (unless you live in California) for the only purpose it serves is catching carbon. Let the muffler cool on its own, don't cool with water or you will warp it and it won't seal right. Also while the muffler is off check the muffler port and scrape off any buildup there with a knife. Hope this helps.

IT SOUNDS LIKE A TWO CYCLE ENGINE TO ME. THE HOSE GOING TO THE PRIMER BULB GOES TO THE HOSE THAT SITS ON THE TOP OF THE TANK AND DOEST GO IN FAR AT ALL AND IS USUALLY THE BACK. THE OTHER HOSE GOES IN THE NID PART OF THE TANK OR THE PART THAT THE GAS IS AT ITS HIGHEST POINT IN THE TANK WHEN THE UNIT IS IN THE POSITION MOST LIKE IT IS WHEN IN USE USUALLY THIS HOSE HAS A SMALL FILTER IN THE TANK. THIS SYSTEM OPERATES ON PRESSURE. WHEN YOU PUMP THAT BULB, IT PRESURIZES THE TANK FORCING GAS UP THROUGH THE OTHER LINE TO THE CARB. IF YOU ARE SYING THERE IS A 3RD HOSE HMMM, THAT PROBABLY GOES TO THE MIDDLE PART OF THE CARB

Did you replace the gasket (item 15 on the linked document) when replacing tank and lines, if you didn't and the old one has been torn it could be sucking in air, also the 4 carb mount screws need to be of equal tightness

The primer pulls fuel through the carbruetor
So take your return line from the carb. and hook it to the inlet side of the primer and the other side
of the primer bulb transtions into the fuel tank.
You know when you have hooked it up right when you press the primer it fills with fuel and dumps back into the tank.
