I cannot tell you about a picture, but for one: chain direction, the bottom of the bar is where the cutting takes place, and therefore, looking at the chain, you will see, on the bottom, the antikick back link is sort of curved, and then the next part is the straight tooth. The highest part of this straight tooth is the sharp edge, and this high part should face towards the motor. The chain, on the bottom side of the bar, is pulled in towards the motor by the clutch/gear. That is your direction of travel.
As to cleaning the air filter, Hopefully you have access to compressed air, as in simply blowing off the dirt. You do not want to use liquid cleaner. Simply blow off any dirt, after pulling the filter away from the carburetor, of course. Then place it back in place.
It may be that your chain is real dull. The top edge of the high part of the flat tooth needs to be sharp. And the outside corner needs to come to a nice point. Remember, there is two cutting surfaces on each tooth, the top is cutting down into the wood, and also that outside sharp corner is openning the cut for the bar to pass through. Proper sharpening, if new to it, can be hard to grasp. Any chainsaw manual should show how to do a good job.

Replace the fuel filter. Sounds like you have the primer lines hooked up backwards.

There ARE two holes in the tank. One samll and another larger. One is on the left side and the other is on the right. Look carefully and you'll find them. As far as connections of the fuel lines:
The line from the fuel filter in the tank goes directly through the small hole in the tank to the top nipple on the carb thus giving the carb a constant supply of fuel when running. The primer bulb is used only for "priming" and does not play a part in the fuel flow after that function. The bottom nipple on then carb then goes back to the nipple on the primer bulb which is clearly marked "Carb". The above connections are made with the smaller diameter tubing. From the primer bulb, marked "Tank", the larger diameter tubing is routed to the large hole in the tank. The tubing goes into the tank only 1/2 to 3/4 inch. As far as getting the tubing through the holes in the tank, cutting the tubing at a slant. But no matter what you do it is still a witch. Be patient, use some Vaseline and avoid the temptation to get out the drill and **** the hole to a larger size.
