I have seen a couple of different things cause this... Are the fuel lines hooked up and not split and fuel filter routed right in tank.(hanging freely touching bottom of tank lying flat) next if your carb has adj. screws H &L I have seen when the H is cranked snug (lean) that primer won't work right. Last but not least your Needle inlet valve is stuck shut and or the fuel pump diaphram little tabs are not sealing off chambers in carb on fuel pump side. make sure your fuel lines are properly hooked up to the right spots. when you push primer bulb it should squirt gas into the fuel tank, then when you release it ,it should draw fuel from the tank through the filter and thru the carb and then out to tank.

You may have a dirty carburetor. this can be tough to fix as the openings are so small. Also you may have a dirty fuel filter. (often located in the gas tank) also does it have a priming bulb? Trying freash gas is always a good idea.

Unlikely as it has a 4 stroke engine. Unless you didn't bother to check the engine sump oil.

Basic maintenance here. Try and turn the crankshaft output with a wrench.

Chainsaw oil pumps are fairly simple affairs, to increase oil flow you obviously cannot increase the engine speed, so you increase the throw of the pump shaft, so the pump shaft not only rotates, it moves back and forth ( the throw ) so the back of the pump shaft is cut off at an angle, the adjuster screw sits on the back of the shaft, so now when it rotates it moves in and out due to this angle, so the close the screw is to the centre of the shaft the lesser the throw, the further out the bigger the throw, so unscrewing the adjuster ( anti clockwise ) increases the flow, and visa versa.

Try cleaning the carburetor and blow or clean jets. Then new mix and clean fuel. Start up, and probably set the idling to a little faster to start then adjust for good idle speed so it won't stall. Hope this may help.
