My Poulan Pro 24" cas primer does not send gas to the

Customer Question
My Poulan Pro 24"...

My Poulan Pro 24" cas primer does not send gas to the carborator. I tested the spark plug and it works. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Last year. This is the first time I attempted to start it this year and it did not work.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Put new fuel in tank today. gas valve is open. Can not see fuel. It sounds like the gas is not entering through the gas primer.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I would like to.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I did not summarize the snow blower. It has not worked for two seasons because we had a very mild winter last year.
