Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

The first thing that I would look at is to make sure that the lines are hooked up to the primer and carburetor properly. If they seem to be proper then the other thing to look at is the carburetor diaphragms, when they get stiff or hard they will not pump properly which will cause this issue.

Took and cleaned the carburetor put it back together still no gas in the blub. The blower took six pulls before it would start so so I took the carburetor off and both plates clean with carb cleaner and then carefully put it back together, still no gas in the bulb

Did you replace the diaphragms in the carburetor when you had it apart?
